Apple crisp is one of those classic Fall dishes that I look forward to making each year. The combination of apples and spices seems to always be my first indication that the holiday season is fast approaching. I recently stumbled across this recipe and found it to be the perfect ratio of apples, sugar, spice, and crumb topping. Also, the leftovers make a delicious topping for pancakes or waffles.

Apple Crisp

Serves 4-6

7 large apples (I used a mix of Granny Smith and Cameo)

Juice of 1 lemon

¼ cup water

¼ cup white sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

½ tsp salt

1 ½ Tbsp. cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1 cup flour

1 stick cold unsalted butter

½ cup quick cooking oats

imagePreheat oven to 350 degrees.

Slice apples into 2 inch pieces (I like to leave the skin on).
