Awesome Apple Crisp

Dear Mimi,

Here is what I had for dessert today.


Oatmeal Cinnamon Apple Crisp Topped with Vanilla Ice Cream and a Butterscotch Caramel Drizzle

After one of my friends dropped off some of this homemade apple crisp and told me she ate it with ice cream, I just HAD to try it myself. And you can imagine just how delectable this was. ヽ(^。^)ノ

Naturally, I asked her for the recipe and here we are.
