Don't want to make pie crust? Make A Crisp!

If you are one of those who is afraid to make a homemade pie crust, or if you don't have the time, how about a warm, bubbly, apple crisp?  My family loves this.  It is so good, warm and fresh from the oven with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream plopped on top.  I thought about what should be on my Thanksgiving menu today - but haven't made any firm decisions.  I am toying with doing a few turkey breasts instead of a whole turkey.  I did also decide on a sweet potato recipe that has carrots and a bit of orange juice in it as well.  Super cold here in Minnesota this morning, in my neck of the woods we woke up to 9 degrees - yep that is a single digit  :(  I did hear that the northernmost parts of the state woke up below zero - UGH.  Glad that wasn't me.  I am making a quick potato/ham/cheese soup for supper tonight - its bubbling on the stove, some nice french bread is warming in the oven right along side the apple crisp that is baking!  Enjoy!

Apple Crisp
5 c. apples, peeled and diced ( I used Cortland & Haralson)
2 tbsp. cinnamon sugar
Place your apples in a 9 x 9 baking dish.  Sprinkle with your cinnamon sugar.  Prepare the following topping:
1 c. quick cooking oats
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. melted butter
Mix all of your dry ingredients together.  Stir in the melted butter to form a crumble.  Sprinkle this over the top of your apples.  Bake @375 for 35 minutes, or until golden and bubbly!
