apple crispWhen it comes to fall desserts, apple crisp is one of my favorites. It’s sweet and tangy and completely comforting. Served with ice cream, it’s the perfect end to any meal.  It’s great for Thanksgiving meals too, as it’s an excellent alternative (or addition)  to all the pumpkin pies.

While it’s a simple dish that doesn’t require many ingredients, there are actually a bushel of delicious recipes out there that each take a different twist on the classic dish.  Here are seven of my favorites.

1. Caramel Apple Crisp

The addition of gooey caramel puts this version over the top.

2. Apple Crisp With Salted Caramel Sauce

This is literally dripping with deliciousness.

3. Chocolate Apple Crisp

It sounds a little strange at first, but when you try it, you’ll be sold.

4. Peanut Butter Apple Crisp

You know how apples smeared with peanut butter are one of the all-time best snacks? This is even better!

5. Apple and Pear Crisp

The pears provide a little extra something, and that something is delicious.

6. Cranberry Apple Crisp

Not only do the cranberries provide a nice pop of color, they also add a nice zing to the dessert.

7.  Butterscotch Apple Crisp

This will blow you away.
