Apple Crisp

Here's another dessert for you!  This is a great dessert to bring to someone's house as a gift, especially if you put it in a nice baking dish they can keep after everyone eats it all up!  But don't forget the ice cream!!!
Apple Crisp
For the Crumb Topping:
1 stick unsalted butter or margarine, melted
1 cup flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (light or dark is fine)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the Apple Filling:
5 apples, peeled and sliced thinly (Use any kind of apple or try a variety)
2 lemons, juiced
4 tablespoons sugar (You can mix white and brown sugar for this if you'd like, and feel free to add more sugar if you want the apples to be sweeter.)
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. To make the crumble, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix with a fork until pea-sized balls form, set aside.  This can be done ahead of time. Place crumble topping in an airtight container and left in the fridge until you are ready to bake the apple crisp.

Place sliced apples in a bowl and pour half of the lemon juice over the apples to prevent discoloration.  Prepare the rest of the ingredients and pour over apple slices.  Using clean hands mix the contents of the bowl so that the apples are equally coated with all ingredients.  Pour apples into a baking dish and cover with the crumb topping. Bake apple crisp for about an hour or until the apples are fork tender and the crisp is golden brown around the edges. 

NOTE: You can use this recipe with any type of fruit crisp.  Try berry, pear, peach, plum, the options are endless!  If you like raisins try adding some in with the apples.  Or combine pears and apples together. Or apple and cranberries. You get what I mean I hope.  Enjoy!
