apple crisp...

we're settling into the new school year... the temps are falling... jean coats and boots are re-surfacing... people are ready for all things "fall"...
 
this past sunday i wanted to take the girls to our local apple farm... we drove there only to find a completely packed parking lot... cars parked at the street... in the parking lot behind the main building... shopping carts were e v e r y w h e r e...
i pulled in and pulled back out... my main reason for going was the honeycrisp apple...  i'm thinking about heading back during the week when the traffic has slowed down...
 
luckily for me, when we went to visit my grandpa later that day, my uncle had brought over a whole bucket full of apples from his apple tree...
 
hmmm... what to do? what to do?
 
make apple crisp...
 
 thought i'd share our families recipe with you today...
 
apple crisp 
 
ingredients
 
8 apples {peeled and sliced}
 
1 cup of oats
 
1 cup flour
 
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
 
1 tbsp. cinnamon
 
1/2 cup butter
 
directions
 
preheat oven to 375 degrees
 
lightly grease the bottom of your 13 X 9 baking dish
 
peel and slice apples and layer in the bottom of the dish
add all other dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix... 
{i didn't have any regular oats so i added the instant maple brown sugar oats that i had on hand... it worked out just fine}
then cut in the butter to form a crumbly topping...
 
pour topping over the sliced apples in the pan
bake for 30-35 minutes {you'll be able to tell when it's finished because the top will be nicely browned}
 
i always serve ours with a side of vanilla ice cream... it's really yummy!
enjoy!
 
have a happy day~
