Easy Apple Crisp

Easy Apple Crisp (with a little Vanilla Ice Cream)

10-12 cooking apples
1 C. sugar
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
3/4 C. flour
6 T. (3/4 stick) butter
1/4 C. walnuts or pecans, chopped

Slice the apples, peeled & cored, into a bowl.  Add 1/2 cup sugar, the lemon juice, cinnamon & cloves.  Mix well, then transfer to a greased (I just used Pam) baking dish (I used a pan that was a bit smaller than a 9 x 13 pan).  In a separate bowl, combine the flour with 1/2 cup of sugar.  Then, cut in the butter until crumbly.  Stir in the nuts and sprinkle this mixture over the apple mixture.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until bubbly.

I love to serve this with vanilla ice cream.  It is also good with Cool Whip.

Here is a pic of the apple mixture -

Lucy, on the other hand, was loving playing with some recipes that I was sorting to put in my "to try" pile -
