Fall means apple season here in Michigan. So, when grandma was here for the last week, we decided to put the peck I purchased to use and make apple crisp, one of my favorite treats (and even better than apple pie in my opinion). We followed a simple recipe I’ve made a few dozen times. It always turns out delicious…but as my grandma said “Nothing with 3 sticks of butter can turn out bad!” It’s not healthy, but boy is it delicious. Here’s the recipe:
2 cups of flour
2 cups of rolled oats
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
1½ cups of brown sugar
1½ cups of butter (3 sticks)
2 quarts of apples (4 cups or about 5-6 small/medium apples), sliced thin – Honeycrisp, McIntosh and Cortland are good bets, but use your apple preference.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine mixture (I just blend it all together versus layering to make it easy). Spread into a 9×13 greased pan.
Bake for 45-50 minutes.
TIP: For extra indulengence, serve with vanilla ice cream and caramel syrup. To get that fresh-from-the-oven taste, nuke for 25 seconds before serving if cooled.
