For some reason blogger is not letting me upload the other pictures I have of this apple crisp. Annoying. Anyway this is a yummy dessert for those like me that don't care too much for a chocolaty dessert. Served warm with vanilla ice cream it's delicious.I like to use granny smith apples because of their tartness. You can use any kind of baking apples you like.
8 medium sized baking apples, peeled cored and sliced
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup sugar (you may need a little more. I like to get the apples coated with sugar)
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
8 Tablespoons butter (one stick), softened
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel, core and slice your apples. Make sure they are all uniform in size so they cook evenly. Place your cut apples in an 8X10 baking dish. Squeeze your fresh lemon juice on the apples and mix. Pour sugar and cinnamon on the apples and mix again lightly coating each apple with sugar. In a separate bowl mix flour, oats, brown sugar and cinnamon together. Add softened butter and mix thoroughly. Sprinkle the crumb topping over your apple filling. Bake for 35-40 min or until apples are tender. Serve with ice cream.
