This seems to be the Year of The Recipe.

Almost weekly one, or all of my kids are bringing home recipes that they have made in their classrooms.

Normally it's just Dead Tree that's brought home to be .. *ahem* filed.
So I actually rather consider this a bonus .. because #nomnomnom

Except the potato bread one.  I could have probably lived without that one.   Granted, pretty sure the error was mine - since it is of course so easy to follow a recipe while tripping over many willing hands, whining voices, and one curious cat.

However, when the season is ripe for the picking

 and life gives you apples --- you get crisp!

Ingredients for filling:

7-8 large baking apples (about 10 cups)
1/2 cup sugar  (less if the apples are sweeter)
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Ingredients for Topping:

1 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. each baking powder and baking soda
1/2 cup butter softened


 *Very important!  Do not dump everything into one bowl and try to mix it   - advice from a friend.*

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  

Peel and core apples.   Slice in quarters, and cut each slice across in half.

In a large bowl, mix with filling ingredients of sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Transfer to a 9 x 13 inch pan.

Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder/soda and butter.   Crumble over the apple mixture.
Bake the crisp for about 45 minutes.
ready for the oven!
