Apple Crisp

I have learned that if I post our family favorite recipes on this blog, I will always be able to find them.
I made fresh Apple Crisp for my Seminary class this morning in honor of David O McKay's Birthday on Monday, September 8. It also  seemed a fitting treat for 9/11...America...sort of apple pie...

My sister came to the rescue with the recipe last night and it was a hit. Fall is on the way and the apples are fresh. I used MacIntosh and Granny Smith apples, left the peels on (of course, washed them) and cut them in small chunks.

Not sure if it was because I have not had Apple Crisp in a long time or if this was truly one of my better successes, but either way, it was delicious and my students devoured it.

Apple Crisp
In a 9x13 pan, place:
2 quarts sliced apples ( I used about 10 small-medium apples)
1 C Sugar
2 Tbsp Flour ( I used 3)
1 tsp Cinnamon
Mix until apples are well-coated.

1 C Brown Sugar
1 C Flour
1 C Oatmeal
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 sticks (1 cup) butter (do not use margarine)
Optional- Add 3/4 C coarsely chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts (I rarely add nuts)

Mix together until crumbly. Spread over apple mixture
Bake at 375 for 40-50 minutes until topping is lightly browned.
Serve warmed with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
