Fall and apples go hand in hand.. both are going fast, so scurry into the kitchen and whip up a pan of Apple Crisp. Eat it warm with ice cream and think of me!
5 cups diced, peeled apples
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup water ( add a few tablespoons apple brandy - Calvados- if you have it)
3/4 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup self-rising flour
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine apples, 1 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, and cinnamon in a 9x9-inch baking pan. Pour water over mixture. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Stir with a fork until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over apples. Bake 45min. - 1hr. or until apples are tender and topping is light brown and crunchy. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
Note: If your apples are really sweet, reduce the sugar on them.
If you don't have self-rising flour, use all-purpose and add 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
