Simple Apple Crisp

I have always loved apple crisp.  As a kid we went apple picking every year in September and I still love the smell of Macintosh apples.  Almost every year since I've been married (that would be 6 now) I have attempted apple crisp and it's always failed.  But not this year!!!  I followed this simple recipe, served with a little whipped topping or vanilla ice cream and it was a hit!  Enjoy!

Simple Apple Crisp

6-7 TART Apples, cored (I left the peelings on for extra nutrition)
4 tsp Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp Vanilla (didn't have this on hand, so I skipped it)
1 c Brown Sugar (used dark brown sugar)
1/2 tsp Cinnamon (also added a little nutmeg, yum)
1 c Rolled Oats (old fashioned, not quick cooking)
1/2c Butter (room temp, even though we're cutting it in)

Preheat oven to 375.  Combine first three ingredients, toss.  Layer in a greased 9x12 baking dish (next time I make it I'm going to try it in the 8x8 and see how it does).
Combine brown sugar, cinnamon and oats.  Cut in butter.  (Don't know what that means, here's how to "cut in butter.")  Sprinkle this mixture over your apples and bake 40-45 minutes (or until topping is brown and apples are tender).  ENJOY!!!
