There have been a few things that I can bake well, consistently. Cheesecakes, muffins, and I recently developed a quality chocolate cake recipe. Basically, I cook based on flavor. I always have a testing spoon in my hand tasting everything as I go. Baking does not work like this. It is not always something you can taste as you go.
Apple crisp is something I have always loved. It reminds me of being a kid and playing in the snow in my home state of Maine. It is not just the taste but the smell of fresh local apples baking on the oven with gobs of cinnamon and sugar.
I have never been able to master the crisp. The apple mixture I can knock out of the park, with many varieties but the crisp is too much baking. I never get it right.
Not perfect so no recipe to share but I am getting there. Damn that crumble topping!
