I must really love that sweet little 11 year old of mine. I had a lovely bag of my favorite apples (pink lady - YUM!!) and used all of them for her very first Apple Crisp. She was in heaven! I think she ate half the pan all by herself. You'd never know she likes to eat by looking at her, though. If only I had that problem....
8 cups sliced apples
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup instant oats
5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except topping ingredients. Mix well and pour into a 3 quart baking dish (I used a 9x13 inch pan). Combine all topping ingredients and use a pasty blender to cut butter into the other ingredients. When the butter is cut in and looks like small crumbs, sprinkle over apples. Bake for 45 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
