I was looking for a double crust apple crisp recipe and couldn't find one that I liked. This is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. It has a lot of crunch and the filling is sweet & spicy. My husband likes it warm with ice cream. I had it as a side for cottage cheese as well and it was yummy!
Preheat oven to 325. While it is heating put stick of margarine into 9 inch square pan & put in oven to melt.
Crust-put walnuts in food processor & grind until consistency desired. I grind mine pretty fine for better mixing. In large bowl lightly mix flour, brown sugar, cinnamon & ground walnuts together. Remove pan of melted margarine from oven & pour into dry ingredients. Mix well until crumbly. Pour half of mixture into the 9 inch pan, press down firmly & return to oven while preparing apples.
Pour lemon juice into large bowl. Core and peel apples, slice into 1/8"-1/4" slices, put into bowl & toss in lemon juice after each apple. Add sugar, salt, remaining spices & mix well. Let sit for 10 minutes to bring out juices.
Remove crust from oven, Cover warm crust with filling. Cover with remaining crust mixture. Return to oven for 1 hour or until apples are fork tender.
