Autumn is my favorite time of year! And after a busy September filled with beautiful weddings and an amazing vacation spent in Tuscany, Italy, to celebrate our second anniversary, the Mr. and I are just now embracing the change of seasons in New York.
Friday evening, I stopped at Whole Foods on my way home from work to pick up a few things for dinner. As I entered, the produce section was overflowing with apples and my craving for apple crisp set in immediately.
I had come across this recipe, on another blog I occasionally read, so decided to try it out. The combination of brown butter, vanilla bean and bourbon intrigued me... Which I now realize, are the secret ingredients! As the dessert baked, the sweet smell of the fruit and spices perfumed our entire apartment.
I hardly got the finished crisp completely out of the oven before both the Mr. and I took a spoonful. Our real serving was topped with a heaping scoop of ice cream, of course.
I have to laugh now because we ate this treat so fast, I didn't even have time to snap a picture. Hence the reason for not including any in this post. I guess this really is 'The Best Apple Crisp You'll Ever Have'!
