Warm Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp Cropped

I'm not much of a baker but I love apples, and they're especially divine with a dollop of vanilla ice cream, drizzled in caramel.

6 C chopped, peeled apples (doesn't necessarily have to be 6... use your judgment)
2 TBSP sugar
1 TBSP fresh lemon / lime juice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 C flour
1/2 C old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 C granulated sugar
1/3 C firmly packed golden brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt (omit if using salted butter)
1/2 C unsalted butter, melted

1. Heat oven to 350
2. Stir together filling ingredients, dump into glass pie dish or baking dish (I use a small, 9x9, but you can use a larger dish)
3. Make the topping by stirring the flour, oats, sugars, cinnamon and salt until well blended. Stir in melted butter, until evenly moistened crumbs form.
4. Spoon crumb mixture evenly over the filling.
5. Bake 35-40 minutes, until apples are tender. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
6. Top with vanilla ice cream and warm caramel.

Can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 days
