Apple Crisp

Honeycrisp apples (my FAVORITE!) are in season. I expect to post a few favorite apple recipes soon. Here's the first... :)

5 lbs McIntosh or Macoun apples
zest of 1 lemon
2 Tbls freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ C sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg

‘Crisp’ topping:
1½ C flour
¾ C sugar
¾ C brown sugar
½ tsp salt
1 C oats
½ lb cold, unsalted butter

Preheat oven to 350°  Lightly coat a casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Peel, core and cut apples into wedges. Gently stir apple wedges with zests, juices, sugar and spices until evenly coated. Pour into casserole.

Topping: Combine flour, sugars, salt, oats. Cut in butter, stirring until mixture is crumbly with pea-sized pieces of butter. Scatter evenly over surface of apples.

Bake 1 hour until top is browned and apples are bubbly. Best served warm. (with ice cream)
