There’s really nothing more exciting than knowing that Thanksgiving is around the corner and I have an excuse to eat Apple Crisp for breakfast and dessert every day of the week!  Mom's Famous Apple Crisp from www.whatsgabycooking.com (@whatsgabycookin)

This classic apple crisp has been in the fam for years. My mom makes it for all special occasions starting at Thanksgiving and ending sometime in the new year and it’s easily my favorite holiday dessert. Especially served with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. The streusel topping is out of this world and it’s hard to control myself – because given the opportunity, I’d eat nothing but the streusel bits with ice cream. Like many things that I eat, I consider it a game changer.
