Hello all…
The smell of warm apples and cinnamon wafting thru the air reminds me of Fall. This wonderful Apple Crisp will delight more than just your sense of smell.
This isn’t your basic Apple Crisp with butter and flour as a crumb top. The mixture we will use here has oats in it and makes for a much heartier crisp topping.
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, melted

4 cups peeled, cored and sliced apples
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Toss the apples in the juice of 1 lemon, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Stir until crumbly. Press half the oat mixture into a 9X13 inch baking dish. Cover with sliced apples.
In a medium saucepan, combine white sugar, cornstarch, cold water and vanilla. Cook, stirring, until thick and clear, 10 minutes. Pour over apples.
Cover apples with remaining crumble mixture.
Bake in preheated oven 45 minutes, until bubbly and golden.
Let it cool before serving. The filling will be extremely hot!!
Be good…
