Annual Apple Orchard Trip & Apple Crisp Recipe

Labor Day Weekend we drove up to Flat Rock, NC to Sky Top Orchard for our annual apple picking trip.  We've being going to the same orchard for a few years and always look forward to it!  We did some strategic scheduling and decided to go Friday during the day in hopes of missing the Labor Day crowds.  Our plan worked...except for a pop up thunderstorm.  Luckily we were all done picking our apples--Galas, Courtlands, and Golden Delicious were on the menu this time. 

And what comes with apple baking, of course!
Grandma Nancy's Apple Oatmeal Crisp
Makes 6 servings.
3-4 tart cooking apples 
½ C(1 stick) butter or margarine ( I have used both depending on what I have) 
¾ C firmly packed brown sugar  (again I use light or dark or a combination of what I have)
¾ C quick cooking oatmeal
½  C flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Pare apples: quarter, core and slice thinly.  Arrange slices in buttered shallow 6-cup baking dish.
2.  Melt butter or margarine in a medium size saucepan.  Stir in brown sugar, oatmeal, flour, and cinn. until mixture is crumbly: sprinkle over apples. I never find this real crumbly but use it like it is.
3.  Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees) for 35 min. or until crumbs are golden brown, and apples are soft when pierced with a fork.

Happy Fall Yall! Enjoy :)
