I remember watching one of my former roommates in awe as she whipped up an apple crisp in 10 minutes flat, without a recipe. It wasn’t until I made it myself that I realized how easy it really is. It’s really hard to screw up an apple crisp, even if you estimate the measurements. It’s a pretty healthy dessert that tastes amazing, and you can make it on a whim because you’ll probably have the ingredients on hand. In fact, I did that last night when a friend came by unexpectedly for dinner, marking the second time I made apple crisp in a week. I found this recipe on Cooks.com and adjusted it slightly.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease square (8 x 8) baking dish with butter and arrange apple slices on the bottom. Mix the other ingredients well in a medium sized mixing bowl; the mixture should end up crumbly. Sprinkle it over the apples, covering them. Bake until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender, 30-35 minutes. If you like the topping extra crispy, turn off the oven but leave the baking dish to warm inside for another 10-30 minutes.
