Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp

As promised, I have a recipe for Apple Crisp to share with you. If you don't know, Apple Crisp is like apple pie without the crust...it is really good and really easy. We use this recipe from Recipezaar and it always turns out well. (The submitter says it is from her great-grandmother, so it is definitely tried and true!)

Old Time Apple Crisp
Recipezaar #274904
40 minutes total time/10 minutes prep time

Serves 6 -8

4 cups apple sliced [We used four apples.]
3/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup butter

Pre-heat oven to 375.
Grease 8 x 8 baking dish.
Arrange apples in the pan.
Mix remaining ingredients with fork; sprinkle over apples.
Bake until apples are tender and topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
Serve. [Some people like vanilla ice cream on top of warm apple crisp.]

Apple crisp is one of my family's favorites and I almost always have the ingredients on hand to make it. We like it with vanilla ice cream :) I also add a some oats to the topping ingredients. It's about the only way some in our family will eat oats.

Maybe I should have read the ingredient list better! You also put oats in your apple crisp. Oh, well, it's getting late in the day for me, almost 4:00. Sorry about that!

I love love love apple crisp, and Fig counts it as one of his all time fav's. We do it with vanilla ice cream sometimes, and sometimes we melt cheddar or colby cheese on it. I know it is weird, I had never heard of such a thing until moving to New England but it is yummy. (we do the same with apple pie as well)

Is this one calorie friendly too or is it too much of friends with calories?
