Apple Walnut Crisp
My mom loved fruit desserts (and all desserts) just like me. When I came across an extensive article on all the different iterations of fruit + dough in desserts, I was astounded to learn that in addition to crisps, one could also make: a betty, a buckle, a slump, a grunt, a cobbler, a pandowdy... oh my! My mom and I had a running joke of seeing fresh fruit and saying, "oh- those peaches look great- they would make a great a great crisp-- OR-- a betty, a buckle, a slump....". Crisps are one of our favorites because they are simple and pleasingly crisp on the top while warm and sumptuous fruit bubbles below.
