an apple dessert

Everyone who tastes my apple crisp, LOVES it! LOL! It's true :-)

Anyway, I got this recipe a long time ago in some magazine. I tweaked the ingredients a bit until I thought it was just right. In our home, we argue about the topping for apple crisp; some of us love ice-cream on top, others (dh) love just plain cream. Whatever you like, this is best served warm. You can cook supper and prepare the apple crisp. Pop it into the oven while you're eating, and it'll be ready when you finished supper. It's also a great dessert to bring to potluck meals.


Bottom layer:

Peel, core and slice a bag of apples. Put them in a lightly greased baking dish (mine is 10x15" I think - a Pyrex glass dish). In a small cup, mix 3 Tbsp brown sugar, 2 Tbsp lemon juice and 1/2 cup water. Pour this over the layer of apple slices.

Crumb layer:

2 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup flour
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/s tsp salt
2/3 cup butter (softened)

Mix this -- it may need to be mixed by hand. Add to the top of the apples. Bake at 375 deg for 30 minutes. Serve while warm and top with ice-cream. Delicious!
