Mom's Easy Apple Crisp

Several years ago, a friend of mine made this easy dessert.

Matter of fact, she threw it together as we sat around the table.

Which, in my book, means it's a great recipe to have on hand.

Now that Fall weather has settled in, I decided to make this the other night.

I halved the recipe.

There were only 4 of us for dessert and I didn't want a lot left over.

It worked out perfectly!

The original recipe doesn't use oatmeal. 

But I like the oatmeal.  I reduce the amount of flour and make it up with old fashioned oats.

I also like that this recipe makes it's own delicious sauce.

Just perfect!

Mom's Easy Apple Crisp

6 apples (peeled, cored, and sliced)*
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup water

Crumb Topping

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup flour (or reduce the flour to about half and add old fashion oats)
1/4 tsp. salt
6 TBSP butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Toss the apples with the sugar and cinnamon.  Add the lemon juice and water.  Toss to coat.

Pour into a greased 8 X 8 pan

For the topping; mix the brown sugar, flour (and oats, if using) and salt together.  Add the melted butter and stir until coarse crumbles form.

Sprinkle over the apples and bake for 40 minutes.

Serve warm.
