Apple Crisp

Makes - 6 - 8 Servings

For ToppingFor Filing
Flour – 1 1/3cupApples – 6
Brown Sugar – 1 1/3 cupSugar – 1/2 cup
Oats – 1/2 cupCinnamon Powder – 1 - 2 tsps (optional)
Butter – 8 tbsps or 1 stick
Pecans/Walnuts – 1/4 cup (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of a baking dish.

For topping, mix the flour, brown sugar, oats and nuts (optional) in bowl.

Blend the butter into the mixture until it’s crumbly. Set aside.

Peel the apples and cut into 1 inch pieces.

I use two varieties of apple; Granny Smith and Gala. Granny smith is tart and Gala is sweet. I do this to give a combination of sweetness and tartness. You can use any sweet apple variety and if you like, add lemon juice for the tartness.

Add sugar and cinnamon powder (optional) to the apples and toss to coat well.

Place the apples in the greased baking dish and spread the topping evenly over the apples.

Bake for 40 – 50 minutes until apples are bubbly and, topping turn golden brown.

Remove from oven and let it cool a little.

Serve warm with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream.
