Apple Crisp

Hmmm... autumn arrives delivering its gorgeous selections of apples. Once trip to the orchard, so many varieties. My favorite is Honey Crisp. It's the perfect apple for me to cook, bake, munch on...

Here's a simple favorite that's a winner every time...

Apple Crisp

  • 1 lemon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • 2-3 TBSp sugar
  • 1/2 c rolled oats
  • 1/2 c packed, brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Mix the first 4 items together (apples) & pour into a 2qt baking dish; set aside.
For the crisp, using a pastry blender (see picture) or a fork/knife, blend together the 5 crisp ingredients; Sprinkle them over the apple slices in the baking dish. 
Bake for 30-35 minutes. Serve warm or room temperature alone or over vanilla ice cream.
