OK, I confess that I make this recipe more for the “crisp” than for the apples! So I tend to put a lot of the oatmeal-butter-sugar topping on the fruit, thinking the oatmeal—as a whole grain—and the fresh fruit qualify this as health food. You decide.
1 C. quick or old-fashioned oats
1 C. packed brown sugar
½ C. all-purpose flour
1 T. cinnamon
½ C. butter or margarine
3 or 4 large apples
Preheat oven to 350º. Combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon and then cut in the butter until well blended. Set aside. Peel, core and slice the apples to make 5-6 cups and put them in a greased/sprayed 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle the oatmeal topping over the fruit, then dig down into the fruit with a spoon to mix in some of the topping. Bake about 40-45 minutes or until fruit is bubbly. Enjoy warm with cream or ice cream. Serves 4-6.
Kitchen Hint: This is also yummy using the same amount of peaches or rhubarb!
