Apple Crisp

My hubby loves baked apple dishes.  So, for his birthday I made him Apple Crisp.  This is just for you, babe!


Peel and slice 4 tart apples. (I used Honeycrisp, our favorite apple.)  Sprinkle with a splash of lime juice and a shake or two of cinnamon.  Spray baking dish with spray oil.  Arrange apples in baking dish. It fit perfectly into a 9x6 dish.

Mix together 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, heaping 1/2 cup oatmeal, 3/4 tsp nutmeg, 3/4 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter.

 Mix with fork until...

(it looks like this) well combined.

Spread mixture evenly over the apples.  Bake in 375 oven for 30 minutes.

Hot out of the oven!

It's wonderful served as is, or dress up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.  If you're really daring, try with a bit of shredded sharp cheddar cheese sprinkled on top.

Jim enjoyed it as is, hot out of the oven...for breakfast. **big contented smile**

Recipe adapted from Betty Crocker's New Cookbook circa 1996

'til next time, enjoy!
