I love Autumn! All the beautiful leaves changing color, the smells of baking apples, cinnamon, pumpkin...YUM. One of my favorites is Apple Crisp. It is so simple to make and so delicious. This recipe makes one very large 9x13 pan!
5-6 apples peeled, cored and sliced (enough to fill a 9x13 pan)
1 cup flour (can use whole wheat)
1 cup oats
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cubes butter (3/4 cup) softened
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1. Peel, core and slice apples. I recommend the Back to Basics Apple Peeler it has a really cool suction ottom that adheres anywhere on the counter so you don't have to try and secure it to the edge (works much better than my pampered chef one). Sprinkle chopped pecans over apples.
2. Combine butter, flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and sprinkle evenly over apples.
3. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
