Apple Crisp

I had been wanting to make an apple pie for a long time, but couldn't get past the crust (I want to do it right, but know I still need more experience before I get into making dough). So, when I saw this apple crisp recipe, I knew I had to give it a try.  The smell of this coming out of the oven was great and the taste was even better.

 

Ingredients

6 Large Granny Smith Apples (about 5 pounds worth), peeled, cored and sliced
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Crisp:
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup butter, melted

 

Cooking Directions

Heat the oven to 350 degrees
Combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg in a bowl. Pour melted butter over top.  Mix well.
 
Toss the sliced apples with the white sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. 
 
Place a little more than half the crust mix in a 9x13 inch baking dish.  Layer the apples on the bottom crust.  Optional: Add 1/4 cup of water over the apples.  Crumble the remainder of the crust evenly over the top of the apples.
 
Bake for 45-50 minutes.
 
Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
