Baking Extravaganza: Apple Crisp

A great dessert for a cold, snowy day in Illinois.

Apple Crisp with a Twist(It's with a twist because I didn't have any oats in the house. My solution--3 packets of instant, microwaveable oatmeal. It worked out well enough for me) :)

What's Needed:
4 medium sliced, peeled apples (tart apples work best)
3/4 C. packed brown sugar
1/2 C. all-purpose flour
3 packets of UNFLAVORED instant oatmeal
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1/3 C. cold butter
(Vanilla ice cream, optional--but it's SUCH a good option!)

1. Place the apples in a greased 8-in. square baking pan.

2. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnmon, and allspice. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over the apples.

3. Bake, uncovered, at 375 for 30-35 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.

Serves 6 people
