It's a ritual that makes me feel good. My mother almost always had some after-school sweet snack ready for us: Brownies, chocolate-chip cookies, cinnamon coffee cake or cupcakes. She liked a late-afternoon cup of coffee with hers; we kids shared the trials and tribulations of our school day over a glass of cold milk.
So last night, with skeins of Canada geese honking overhead, I made my traditional first apple crisp of the season.
Here is my recipe. Apparently in 2006, I could not wait for fall!
What is your favorite fall dessert?
