Food Friday: Apple Crisp

This is a super easy crisp that can be prepared ahead of time and frozen. Freeze the apple mixture in a gallon sized freezer bag and the topping in a quart size bag. I usually add some lemon juice to the apples so they do not brown. When ready to use, thaw the apples in the refrigerator for about a day and then assemble. I make several of these in the fall so I can have fresh apple crisp all winter long.

Apple Crisp

5 cups sliced apples (3-5 apples)
2 to 4 T granulated sugar
½ cup regular rolled oats
½ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup all-purpose flour
½ t cinnamon
¼ cup butter
¼ cup chopped nuts (optional)

For filling, place fruit in a 2-quart square baking dish. Stir in the granulated sugar.
For topping, in a medium bowl combine the oats, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the nuts. Sprinkle topping over filling.
Bake crisp in a 375 oven for 30-35 minutes or till fruit is tender and topping is golden. If desired, serve warm with ice cream.
