We had a big family get together last night and it was a blast.  I sure do love summer and barbecues and family get togethers.  We love that we live so close to the mountains and backyard is full of big pine trees and gambel oak.  We roasted s’mores and it was so peaceful and beautiful.  I just love Utah and the mountains!

Summer is quickly wrapping up and although it makes me sad, I look forward to so many things about fall.  The crisp fall air and beautiful leaves and wearing sweaters and feeling cozy inside are just some of my favorite things.  I love being able to turn on my oven again and make delicious fall desserts.

A warm apple crisp is just screaming fall and is the perfect dessert!

I have a classic apple crisp on my blog here.  But with the addition of pecans to this recipe it took it to a whole different and delicious level!

This Apple Pecan Crisp became my new favorite!

I love being able to use fresh apples in this crisp.  The cinnamon sugar mixture works its magic in the oven as it bakes and creates  an amazing cinnamon sugar glaze over the apples as it bakes.

The buttery cinnamon sugar crumb topping is seriously out of this world.

You will not find a better apple crisp recipe I can promise you this.  Not only is it the perfect recipe, the addition of pecans is the perfect finishing touch.

Ok ok.  But lets be honest here.  An apple crisp isn’t complete without a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.  How it just melts into the warm apple crisp and adds a creamy texture to each bite.  Wow.  I am already craving more!

Don’t forget to make this recipe for a delicious fall dessert.  You will not regret it!
