Apple Crisp thuggin'

Today's high was 74 so that means I can finally make something that's worthy of chilly weather. Yes, 74 means it's chilly in Texas, get out of here. I wanted to make an apple pie initially but I'm such a bethos when it comes to making pie crust I opted for a crisp or a crumble. I spent all day looking at recipes and finally just winged one that I felt would work for me. I made notes on post its. That's what I do.

Alright here's the business.

For the filling:
4 granny smith apples peeled and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar (I used the splenda blend)
2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 box raisins (optional. I didn't use them)

For the topping:
3/4 cup quick oats
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar (or splenda blend)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup (half a stick of butter) melted

Cooking Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine apples, raisins, cinnamon, brown sugar and lemon juice in a large bowl. Sprinkle in cornstarch. Mix fruit until well coated, pour into a baking dish.

    In a clean separate bowl mix ingredients for topping. Spread over fruit. Bake about 30 minutes or until topping has browned.

    Then basically eat that shit up with some ice cream or another frozen dairy treat. Whateva you like.
