One of my favorite memories while young, was standing on a step stool, with my little apron on, learning to bake a pie from my Grammy. Sadly, she isn’t with us anymore, I wish she could taste all my baking creations. But, my taste testers work just fine as well. One of them is even her son, my dad! Here is an apple crisp I made for camping a year ago. Freezes well and defrosts nicely.
