Apple Crisp

6 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. sugar

Mix the cinnamon and sugar, then pour over the apple slices and stir well. They will look like this:

Pour apples into greased 9x13" pan.

1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. softened butter
1 c. flour

Mix all ingredients with a pastry cutter or fork until mixtures is crumbly and butter is pretty well combined.  Sprinkle over apples.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 40-50 minutes.

Serve warm with whipping cream or vanilla ice cream.

(If you're in the mood to be naughty, double the crumb topping!  It will make the crust really thick, and let's be honest, that's the best part!  I'm in the mood to be naughty almost every time I make this recipe.  Actually, I'm in the mood to be naughty pretty much all the time!  Oh, and if you're in a nutty mood, add chopped walnuts or pecans to the topping!)

From whence it came:  Another shout out to my wonderful cook of a sister-in-law, Geralene!  She gave me this recipe a long time ago, and it's a doozy!

Why it's blogable:  Because apples are healthy!  They have a lot of fiber and tons of vitamins.  You've heard it, and I know it's true, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!  So what if they weren't referring to apples covered in butter and sugar.  They're still apples!  You can put this recipe right in the fruit and vegetable food group.  I said so!

Hope you enjoy stirring it up!
