Betty Crocker's Apple Crisp

Here's the apple crisp recipe that was requested by Susan. It's easy and very tasty served warm with vanilla ice cream. The first time I made it, I left some of the apples out because it seemed like it was too many. I was wrong. Apples shrink when baked. Use all of the apples. I'm not sure why I thought I was smarter than Betty. I use Golden Delicious apples for this recipe. They are my favorite for baking because they aren't sour. Enjoy!

Betty Crocker's Apple Crisp
4 medium tart cooking apples, sliced (4 cups)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Cream or Ice cream, if desired
  1. Heat oven to 375ºF. Grease bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan with shortening.
  2. Spread apples in pan. In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients except cream until well mixed; sprinkle over apples.
  3. Bake about 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Serve warm with cream.
P.S. Susan, I request that you post your buttermilk syrup and pumpkin pancake recipe!
