Apple Crisp with Amaretto

Apple Crisp with Amaretto

The theme for this months Sugar High Friday being hosted at SpiTtoon Extra is Drunken Apples . I like this theme because local apples are in season and I have been getting different varieties from the farmers market each week. I have been looking forward to making an apple crumble for a while now. I ended up using the following apples in the crisp: 2 Honey Crisp, 1 Mutsu, and Jona Gold. For the drunken part I though that I would try adding a little Amaretto to the crisp. Amaretto is an almond flavoured liqueur that I recently tried. It added a nice subtle almond flavour to the crisp. The crisp was really good and the melting vanilla ice cream was the perfect topping.

Substitute amaretti cookie crumbs for the oatmeal, and now you're talking.
