Apple Crumble with Golden Raisins
One last cool-weather dessert before spring: this combination of apples baked with golden raisins, cinnamon, and a crumb topping is simple, comforting, and delicious. Quite like having apple pie without having to go to the trouble of making a crust, the old-fashioned flavor of this dessert was something I looked forward to having after dinner several nights in a row. It was great on its own, but it reached perfection when it shared the bowl with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. There are definitely things to love about the cooler months: baked apples are something I'll miss until fall comes around again. That's the great thing about different seasons though...there's always something to look forward to as they change.
