At one point,I worked the 12AM graveyard shift at a hospital.The staff often brought in "goodies" to share,that got us thru the 4-6AM slump!Our favorite
cook,"Catherine,"was born and brought up on a farm in the midwest.She had an endless supply of great recipes!One is this apple crisp,which is tasty,and as she said:"as easy as pie to make!"..It has become a family favorite,often requested on a cool fall or wintry night or for a holiday!

Serves:

6-8 or ?.. depending on individual serving sizes

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

40 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

6-8
cooking type apples(?cortland,granny's or ?)
1 c
dark brown sugar
1 c
margerine,softened
1 c
oatmeal, uncooked-regular or quick
1 c
flour
***a couple of shakes of cinnamon and nutmeg atop of the apples.can also drizzle some vanilla over the apples too,all before you add the batter topping.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat Oven to 350.Take out an 8 inch square pan.Do not grease it.
2
Cream together the brown sugar and softened margerine.Next,add the flour and oatmeal,and blend together.The mixture will be sticky and thick.Set this aside.
3
Peel and slice the apples,cutting into slices as for pie.Slice enough apples to almost fill the pan.Sprinkle a couple of good shakes of cinnamon and nutmeg "to taste".. atop of the apples.You can also drizzle a bit of vanilla over the apples now too!
4
Take the mixture of brown sugar,etc,already blended and drop pieces of this batter atop of the sliced apples.Spread it so all the apples are covered-sometimes I get my finger tips wet to do this.
5
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 min,until apples are bubbly and the top is slightly browned.Is wonderful served warm,with a dollup of vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream.But room temperature is pretty darn good,too!
6
***Extra optional/not necessary step-Instead of just sprinkling the spices/vanilla on top of the apples as shown above,sometimes I add 1-2TB of regular sugar,mixed with like 1/2-1TB of flour,then the cinnamon and nutmeg(maybe 1/4 tsp each?)mixed all together with the apples,before adding the topping.Is yum either way,but if you feel so inclined,adding this step is good too.Either way,it's a keeper,bound to please!
