Union Chef: Apple Crisp

By Shelly Lurie

Looking to make a delicious dessert this holiday season but, don’t have the time or patience to follow a complicated recipe? We’ve got you covered with this easy-to-follow recipe for apple crisps (yum)!

Tip: You’ll need 6-7 ounce ramekins – small ceramic or glass bowls – to make this dish. Purchase a set made by CorningWare since their products are touched by IBT as USW workers!

As always, our recipes are designed to use union-made ingredients – so you’re not only satisfying your taste buds, but also supporting good jobs here in the US!
