One Cooking Among Friends® devotee hosts an annual apple crisp party. She has everyone bring a pound of butter and six pounds of apples. She provides the dry goods and spices for the topping and filling. Friends peel and slice the apples, someone processes the topping, and everyone goes home with five or six 4-cup tins of apple crisp. Brunch is served before the crisps are made . . . and of course a large one is baked to eat after clean-up!
Whether you plan to fill your freezer on your own, or enjoy doing so among friends, we hope you enjoy our recipe.
