Apple Crisp

5 C Apples (peeled, cored, sliced)
1/4 C Sugar

1/2 C regular Oats
1/2 C Brown Sugar
1/4 C Flour
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 C Butter

Place apples and sugar in 9x9 in. baking dish.  In a medium bowl combing the oats, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Sprinkle over apples.  Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until fruit is tender and topping is golden.  Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!

*  If I know ahead of time that I am going to be making this I'll put the apples and sugar in a large ziploc bag overnight in the frig.  Then drain out the excess liquid - this way the apple crisp doesn't seem to get as soggy on day #2 (If it even lasts that long).

*  I really like the topping, so sometimes I'll double the topping - but not the apples.  YUM!

*  You can also add chopped nuts or coconut to the topping mixture
