The perfect fall day is best spent with a warm bowl of apple crisp. The streusel recipe used here is a wonderful universal streusel for a variety of other desserts or pies.

BEFORE YOU START: The streusel can be made up ahead of time and frozen. It will make more than you need for this recipe. Another great idea is to use a couple of different kinds of baking apples, as they will each lend their own flavors and nuances to the dish.
