light Apple Crisp

Since this month seems to be the month for apples and the wonderful dishes made with
apples I thought I would post this recipe that I made today and it is very good.

4 cups pared sliced apples (I use Cortland or Mac but most any apple will work)
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats (I used reg. oatmeal, not the quick oatmeal)

3/4 tsp. cinnamon

3/4 tsp. nutmeg (I purposely left this out for it's not our favorite in apple dishes)
1/3 cup butter or margarine cut up.

Prehead oven to 375. Grease 8 by 8 inch square pan

Place apples in pan. Sprinkle with vanilla. In small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg (optional) and butter.
Sprinkle mixture over apples. Bake 30 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown.

I doubled this recipe except for the cinnamon and only put in a cup of brown sugar since apples have a natural sweetness to them and put it in my larger cake pan.

This is very good. Nice to top off with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream.
Enjoy!

Thanks for your comments!

Hubby had some when he came home from work and he really likes it. I didn't have any vanilla ice cream or whipped topping for it but it's still good.
