Apple Crisp

Aren't Fall desserts just the best? You better believe as soon as September 22nd hit, I had Fall desserts on the brain. We had some friends over a couple of weeks ago for dinner and I couldn't wait to make something Fall-ish for dessert. After looking around for a while, I decided on this Apple Crisp recipe. There is just something about pies that rubs me the wrong way, not the taste....but just making pies myself. I wanted to do something apple, and this crisp was just what I was looking for. I made some adjustment to this recipe. Next time I will cut the recipe in half, it was a lot for 4 people! I would guess this recipes makes enough for about 12 people. 

Apple Crisp:
recipe adapted from here 
6 Granny Smith Apples, cored and peeled
1 cup white sugar
1 Tbsp. AP flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup water
2 cups quick cooking oats
2 cups AP flour
2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup butter, softened

Peel and slice apples. Combine oats, 2 cups flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and softened butter together. Divide half of the oats mixture, and lay across the bottom of a 9x13 pan (greased!).Mix the apples, white sugar, water, brown sugar, 1 Tbsp. flour, and ground cinnamon together. Cover the oat layer with apple mixture. Top with remaining oats mixture.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
