Now, I know we all love a good apple pie come autumn. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and for all my American friends, that means it's time to start thinking of the menu—as well as getting ready for that good apple pie.

But how about a different apple item for the table this time around?

We're changing up the typical apple pie with a more spice-forward crisp, one that still includes some pie crust on the bottom, but is saturated with all the classic spices that make this so magical: cinnamon, clove, allspice, and a good amount of ginger. The ginger adds an extra tang and level of flavor to the crisp that apple pie often misses, and trust me, you're gonna love it. So let's talk about the magic in this thing!

Magic in Apple Ginger Crisp

These spices in here? They're called warming spices for a reason. While many of things are also associated with love, and therefore could just as easily make for a love spell in a pie dish (especially with all that apple), we can also use this to get the blood flowing and keep our energy elevated during the last couple months of the year. (Which... you and I both know we're going to need.

With ginger at the forefront as a spell-boosting spice, you know that the energy in this meal will be sharp. But combine that with the fact that this recipe’s spell ingredients are pure fire, and a combination of Mars (ambition and power), Sun (optimism and energy) and Jupiter (authority and grace), and you have a blend of energy that’ll help you stay upright during these busy, colder months.
