I've been hankering for apple crisp for the last couple of weeks. Warm, crunchy-soft, apple-y. Delicious. Oh, and easy. Let's not forget easy. I finally got around to making it last night.
This is the piece I ate for breakfast this morning. Yes, there is ice cream on it. So? Ice cream is dairy right? There's fruit in there. And oatmeal. Sounds like a well-balanced breakfast to me.
Below is the recipe my mom always made. There is another recipe that my amazing friend, Danielle posted HERE that I want to try too. Hers has pecans, so I'm pretty sure it is going to be fantastic.
8 to 10 apples (I don't bother peeling mine)
1 cup flour
1 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups oatmeal (I use old-fashioned as opposed to instant)
3/4 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice the apples into a buttered 9x13 baking dish. To make the topping combine the remaining ingredients with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes.
Serve warm (with vanilla ice cream) or cold.
