Watsonville, Calif., September 15, 2021– Fall into the autumn spirit with a Sheet Pan Apple Crisp; it’s easier to make than an apple pie and loaded with flavor. Made with Martinelli’s Apple Cider or Juice, granny smith apples, orange zest, dark brown sugar, all-purpose flour, salt and sprinkled with a crumbly streusel topping, this is a dessert you’ll be making all season long. Martinelli’s Apple Cider or Juice sets this apple packed treat a cut (or slice!) above the rest, adding robust flavor notes to every bite. After pulling the crisp out of the oven, let it cool for 10-15 minutes and then top it with vanilla ice cream to make it extra indulgent.
