This recipe pairs together two favorite market ingredients: peanut butter (from Saratoga Peanut Butter) and apples (available from a few of the farms and orchards, including Saratoga Apple, Malta Ridge, and Pleasant Valley Farm). You can play with the flavors in the crumb topping by using different varieties of Saratoga Peanut Butter.
