A Nut-Free Fall Treat: Apple Crisp

The dip in the temperatures today sure makes it feel like fall has arrived.  The little lady and I decided to stay snuggled up in our warm, dry house today and naturally, bake something yummy!  Today we opted for one of my favorite fall treats:  apple crisp.

My mom always made amazing apple crisp and I must admit, I have been able to follow in her footsteps.  This yummy dessert is nut-free and the topping is so delicious you'll have a hard time stopping at one piece.

So, from our house to yours, here's our version of apple crisp.  Enjoy!

Apple Crisp

6-8 apples (4 cups), peeled and thinly sliced
1 c. sugar
3 T. flour
1 t. cinnamon

Topping
1 c. quick oatmeal
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. flour
2/3 c. butter (not straight from the refrigerator, but not too soft)

In a bowl, mix the apples, sugar, flour, and cinnamon.  Set aside.  In a separate bowl, mix oatmeal, brown sugar, flour together.  Chop the butter through the mixture.

Lightly spray or rub oil in a pan.  Put in apple mixture, sprinkle topping mixture on top and back for 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  Top with Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream.

*May also substitute cherry pie filling or rhubarb for another yummy option
