There are plenty of ways to celebrate apple season, but this might just be one of our favourites; there's nothing more perfect on a brisk fall day than a batch of classic apple crisp with a cool scoop of vanilla ice cream (just like Grandma used to make!).

How to Make Our Classic Apple Crisp With Oats
- You can make crisps crumbly by working the butter into the flour mixture to create larger crumbles. For a lighter texture, work the cold butter into the flour mixture until it has a sandy texture.
- We like to cut the apples into 1/2-in.-thick slices, then cut them in half so they’re 1 1/2 in. long. This size prevents gaps when filling the baking dish and promotes even cooking.
