Apple Crisp

There’s nothing quite like the smell of apples and cinnamon coming out of your oven and a beautiful evening. This cinnamon scented apple crisp is a perfect dessert, especially if you serve it warm topped with a scoop of low fat vanilla ice cream or frozen yoghurt. The first recipe shows you how to make this and the second recipe (below the video), is the lower calorie version.
