Apple Crisp

I don't buy a lot of sweets to keep around the house. If they are here, we'll eat them. But, sometimes you just get that craving to eat something sweet. That craving hit today, so I had to search around and see what ingredients I had on hand to fix something to take care of our sweet-tooth. My husband likes Granny Smith apples, but my favorite is the good ol' Golden Delicious. With his approval, I decided to use his Granny Smith's to make a pan of Apple Crisp. This recipe is actually kind of good for you. You get a serving of fruit and with the oats you get a touch of fiber. My only regret is not having some vanilla ice cream to go with it.

Apple Crisp
4 C. sliced, pared tart apples
1/2 C. brown sugar, packed
1/2 C. flour
1/2 C. oatmeal
1 t. cinnamon
3 1/2 T. margarine

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8x8x2 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place apple slices in the pan and set aside. Mix remaining ingredients together until the mixture is completely moistened. Sprinkle evenly over apples and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the apples are tender and top is golden brown. Serve warm.

Oh, YUM! This has got to be the simplest and yummiest-sounding recipe ever! Would any kind of apples work? We usually have Fuji or Gala.

I think the Granny Smith work the best. I fixed this last night and only had 2 Granny Smith apples, so we substituted Golden Delicious for the rest and it did not come out as well as it should have. You could try the others and see how they might work. Gala's are my favorite apple, but they are always so expensive at the store.
