Apple Crisp

I absolutely love fall. It is my favorite season for sure. The changing of the leaves, the crisp air, the fall candle scents, apples, pumpkins, cozy feeling, more soups! I cook comfort food all year but it always tastes so much better in the fall for some reason. I grew up going apple picking every year with my family. We would go for the afternoon and fill up a couple of bags of apples and always get apple cider and cherry cider. I looked forward to doing so every year. This year I was looking online for places to go apple picking close by our house and so many of the orchards are not even opening this year because of the weather this spring.

One of my favorite kinds of apples is the honeycrisp apple. They have so much flavor, they are unbelievably good! I load up on honeycrisp apples in the fall all of the time because I know they are out for only a short time. Phil loves my apple crisp that I make so I also made this for him last night. So I decided to post it tonight because it was too good to wait to post until I made it again.

I mixed granny smith apples and honeycrisp apples to make this apple crisp. This is the only recipe for apple crisp that calls for using cake mix for the topping. I really like the flavor the cake mix brings to this apple crisp. YUUUMM!!
