Apple Crisp for the freezer

Freezer Apple Crisp

This Apple Crisp recipe is my favorite recipe to make in the fall when the apples are in season but I love it even more in the winter when I pull it out of the freezer!     It tastes like you just picked the apples off the tree and you’re home will be filled with the scent of Apple Crisp goodness!

Make this recipe for the Frozen with Love Class about Freezer Meals

We make this recipe for the “Frozen with Love” video class that is about making freezer meals.  Its a great dessert to serve a group of people because it can be made months in advance and then its easy to fix on the day you want to eat the dessert.   When we have the video class about freezer meals we put the dessert in the oven when the class begins and then when the Apple Crisp aroma fills the air about the time the video class is talking about this recipe.  It’s a great way to make the participants feel part of the video class.   Plan on one recipe to serve 9 people a smaller serving size (to sample the recipe)   don’t forget to plan on putting Vanilla Ice Cream on top!
