With the Holidays quickly approaching it is time to bring out the recipes for desserts. Apple crisp is a family favorite of ours and is delicious all year round. This isn’t a complex recipe and you can get the kids involved to get in some good quality time. The following is an apple crisp recipe that I have been using for years. As always I hope you enjoy!

4 cups of tart cooking apples (sliced)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oats (quick cooking oats)
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg (ground)
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon (ground)
Shortening (for greasing pan)

Preheat oven at 375 degrees.
Take an 8 inch square pan and grease the bottom and sides with shortening.
Evenly spread out the apple slices in the bottom of the pan.
In a large bowl mix the brown sugar, flour, oats, nutmeg, and cinnamon together.
Once the ingredients are mixed throughly, sprinkle over the apples in the pan.
Bake the apple crisp for approximately 30 minutes or until it is a golden brown.
