Fall Flavors: Apple Crisp recipe

I didn't expect fall to sneak up on us so fast, but now that it is here, it is time to enjoy delicious fall fruits and vegetables. Apples, pumpkin, figs, avocado, sweet potatoes...

To start the cooking season off right, try our apple crisp recipe from the Hosting Weekend Guests episode with Brian Pease and Allison Dougherty.

Apple Crisp

6-8 apples (green and red)
Juice of one lemon

For a 9" square baking dish peel and core 6-8 apples. Slice apples and set aside. (a bowl of slightly acidic water will keep them from turning)

Butter or spray the bottom of baking dish and fill the bottom with sliced apples.
add topping to the dish and bake at 375 degrees F for 30 minutes or till golden brown.

3/4 c. butter
3/4 c. light brown sugar
1/2 C oatmeal
1/2 c. flour
1/4 C walnuts
1/4 t cinnamon

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and crumble over apples and bake. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream. The aroma will fill your house...yum!
