apple berry crsip
The official start of the holiday season.
I am so excited for the holidays this year. I love it every year, but this year we’re headed back to NY for Christmas with my family. We spent the weekend shopping for winter coats, hats, gloves, scarves, and boots that do more than just look cute. Thank goodness for the outlets; we got absolutely everything we needed and of course a few fun extras.
This week we will celebrate Thanksgiving twice. We get to spend the holiday at home, just the four of us, and then on Saturday we head to the in-laws for another family feast. I found two fantastic vegetable dishes to bring to our family dinner, and luckily my mother in law takes care of the pies because you know how I feel about crust.
Even though we will get our fill of pie on Saturday, I didn’t want our meal on Thursday to be without dessert. Pie is really out of the question, unless Charlie decides to try making one (he has to make a pie for his foods and nutrition homework) Stella was not really excited about eating a “charlie” pie, so my contribution along with chocolate pecan pie bars will be this apple berry crisp.
I love apple pie, and I love berry pie, and the two together with a delicious crisp topping is a winning combination for sure. Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, I may have just found my new favorite way to get out of fighting with crust, and I am SO thankful for that!
