[cooking] Apple Crisp

Finally made my first apple recipe of the season:

Apple crisp. Finally. 🍏🍎🍏🍎🍏🍎 #applecrisp #baking

Apple Crisp! There isn't too much prep with my apple spiralizer, which I have to praise every time I take it out. It peels and evenly slices an apple in 15 seconds. Come on. 

And since the dark rum bottle is out for the recipe, it's nice to have a few nips while getting everything together. Measure all the ingredients... take a swig from the Havana Club bottle that would make a pirate proud... cut the butter into the streusel topping... take another sip from the bottle and wonder- If it's a Puerto Rican rum, why is it called Havana Club?... add a splash of rum to the apples and say "some for you..." then take a sip and say "... some for me..." Giggle. Shove everything into a dish and pop it into the oven. Pour yourself a finger of rum before putting the bottle away.

An hour and half later, when the oven timer goes off, ask yourself, "Oh my god, what is in the oven right now?!" Remember that you made an apple crisp, take it out of the oven, let it cool and enjoy with vanilla ice cream. Then go to bed because you started it so late that by the time it finished baking and cooling, it's 10 pm.
