Apple Walnut Crisp came about as I had a craving for something cinnamon’y that was sweet and had lots of apples and walnuts. It didn’t take a lot of time to put together, but the results were wonderful. Brown sugar and butter over finely sliced apples mixed with walnuts and topped with a brown sugar and butter crumble. A perfect apple dessert.
