This recipe has been passed down through women in my family for 5 generations. I love this rendition of Apple Crisp because it is fairly simple to make, absolutely delicious, child friendly, and there are excellent textural differences in each bite. Good served with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or simply by itself.

- 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract

This recipe was a big hit with the 5 of us who ate it. The aroma while it was baking almost drove everyone nuts, it smelled so good. This is indeed easy and delicious. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
