    Ways to serve homemade apple crisp

    This apple crisp dessert tastes great straight out of the pan, but if you want to take it up a notch…try serving it with some of the options below.

    Vanilla Ice Cream: Ice cream is the perfect compliment to this comforting apple crisp recipe. I like to add a scoop (or two!) of my homemade vanilla ice cream.

    Caramel Sauce: A drizzle of caramel sauce tastes absolutely delicious on the apple crisp dessert. Try adding the apple crisp to a bowl, along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and caramel…the combination is heaven!

    Whipped Cream: For a lighter alternative, you can add whipped cream in place of ice cream.

    Chopped Nuts: Sometimes I’ll add a handful of chopped or roasted nuts on top for an added crunch. Pecans and walnuts are my favorite.
