Jen's Apple Crisp

Apple crisp comes in many different forms. This is my perfected version. It's my families favorite fall dessert and I think you will love it too.

Here's the recipe:

Jen's Apple Crisp

For the filling:

6 baking apples, peeled and sliced  (I like to use a mixture of Gala and Honeycrisp)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp lemon juice
1-2 T granulated sugar
1-2 T water

For the topping:

1 cup quick oats
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup unsalted butter or margarine, slightly softened

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
To begin, make the topping: Combine the oats, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl. Using a pastry cutter, a fork, or your hands, cut the butter into the mixture until we incorporated and mixture resembles coarse, pea-sized crumbs. Place mixture in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.

For the filling: Peel and slice apples and place directly into a 9x9 baking dish. Sprinkle the apples with the sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice and water. Stir to combine.

Scatter the topping over the entire top of the apples. Do not pack it down.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes until the apples are tender and bubbling, and the topping is golden brown. Best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top or homemade whipped cream. Enjoy!
