Nashville, TN – How appropriate that the first letter of the alphabet is often illustrated with a big beautiful apple, since apples are an all-American favorite.
“Apple desserts are perfect for fall whether it’s a crisp, crumble, pie or cobbler,” said Martha White® baking expert Linda Carman. “Crisps are easier to make than pies and cobblers, but they provide a lot of the same comforting pleasure.”Cumberland Apple Crisp features a buttery topping of brown sugar, oats and pecans baked over cinnamon apples. This fall favorite is sure to be a family pleaser topped with whipped cream or ice cream.
