Autumn is here again and the orchards are full of crisp and juicy apples. But, it doesn't have to be fall time to bake this tasty apple dessert event, any time is the best time to enjoy this yummy dessert with crispy almond topping.

So...what kind of apples should you use to make an apple dessert? Any common variety will work great, such as Granny Smith, Gala, Fiji, Golden Delicious, or Pink Lady.

Quite frankly I use whatever apples I have on hand. In my book, apples are apples and I have hardly found one that didn’t taste and bake like an apple. Haha

Honey Crisps work great also, no matter which way you eat them. And just because an apple is not bright red or green does not mean they are not a good apple.
