Apple Crisp

I had some apples that I was afraid would not last too much longer and I would have hated to have to thrown them away, or  give them to our chickens. So I looked up a recipe in a cook book that was given to me. I just love this cookbook! It's the Betty Crocker Cookbook, New Edition. I have used this cookbook for entrees and some sides.

Here is the recipe:

4 Medium tart cooking apples, sliced
3/4 Cup packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup all-purpose flour (self-rising flour can be used)
1/2 Cup quick cooking or old-fashioned oats
1/3 Cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 Teaspoon of ground nutmeg

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan with shortening
2. Spread apples in pan. In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients. Sprinkle over apples.
3. Bake for 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork

Options: Serve with ice cream!!!!

My Modifications - * I didn't have tart apples, I used what I had, which I think were gala apples. *I ran out of brown sugar half way through because my husband went cookie crazy and baked a lot, so I used plain white sugar instead. *I first coated the sliced apples with some sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Then I  placed them in the greased baked dish. * I doubled the crisp part of the recipe. I just love me some apple crisp crisp!

Hope you enjoy this recipe! Perfect for those cool days that sneek up on us sometimes!
