Apple Crisp is the sort of dish that you really can't mess up. Pretty much any combination of apples, sugar, butter, and a little cinnamon, will produce a delicious dessert, especially when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This recipe is all over the internet, with many variations. Go ahead and play with it and make it your own, adjusting the ingredients as you please. I must admit that it's the real butter that makes this so tasty, so go with the real thing here.
4 cups medium tart cooking apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (4 cups) (I used Macintosh)
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Place apples evenly in an 8-inch square baking dish OR a 7x11 baking dish.
Combine sugar, flour, oats, and spices. Cut in butter with a knife or pastry blender. Sprinkle over apples.
Bake about 40 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender.
