Apple Pistachio Crisp
What's Cooking USDA
Makes 4 servings
Fruit-based desserts can contribute to making half your plate fruits and veggies. True to their name, Honey-crisp apples are sweet and crunchy, perfectly delicious raw, but also ideal in baking. And their sweetness lends potential to reducing added sugar, as we did with this apple crisp.
