Apple Crisp

I really like a sweet apple crisp and if you do also, this recipe is for you. Apple crisp is really simple to make and doesn't require many ingredients. I love to use Jonathan Apples but any that you have on hand are fine. My grandmother always used Jonathan Apples so this is why I am partial to them. Give this a try when you want apple pie and don't have the time to make one. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.

10 apples of your choice-peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups oatmeal
2 cups butter-softened
1 cup all purpose flour
2 cups brown sugar
1 t vanilla
1 T cinnamon

Place your peeled and sliced apples in a bowl and add your 1 1/2 cups of sugar and cinnamon. Stir long enough as to coat the apples very well. Now pour the apple mixture into a 9x13 baking pan. Now mix your butter, brown sugar, flour, oatmeal, and vanilla together until crumbly. I make a lot of the topping because I really like it!...never can have too much :) Place topping over apples evenly. Bake in a 350' oven for 1 hour. It may not need the whole hour so it is best to check it in 45 minutes to make sure that it does not burn. Serve with vanilla ice-cream.
