APPLE CRISP PREPARATION
4 cups sliced tart apples (about 4 large)
2/3 to ¾ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup oats
¾ tsp. ground cinnamon
¾ tsp. ground nutmeg
1/3 cup margarine or butter, softened slightly
Heat oven to 375°. Arrange apples in greased square 8x8x2 inch baking dish. Mix all dry ingredients. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle crumbs over apples.
Bake until topping is golden brown and apples are tender, about 30 minutes. Serve warm, and if desired, with cream or ice cream. 6 servings
To Microwave: Use ungreased glass baking dish. Microwave, uncovered until apples are tender… about 12 minutes.
