    Easy Apple Crisp

    List of Ingredients

    6 Cooking Apples
    1/4 cup Maple Syrup
    2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
    Cinnamon (to taste)

    For the topping:
    1/2 stick Butter or Margarine
    1/2 cup Maple Syrup
    2 cups Oats
    1 cup Walnuts


    Chop the apples into bite-sized pieces. It's okay to leave the skins on, but be sure to leave out the cores!

    As you cut the apples, put them in a saucepan with enough water to cover them. This will help keep them from turning brown, and also save a step, because you're going to cook them a little in that same pan.

    When the apples are all cut up and in the pan, covered with water, set it on the stove and bring to a boil. Let them cook for a few minutes - maybe 5 or 10 - until they're just tender but not yet mushy.

    Preheat the oven to 350-F degrees.

    Drain the apples; mix together the maple syrup, lemon juice, and cinnamon, and stir the apples around in this mixture to coat them.

    Put the coated apples in a baking pan along with any of the syrup mixture that's left.

    Now mix the butter and maple syrup together with the oats and walnuts to make the topping; spread or drop it over the apples in the pan.

    Cover, and bake for 20-25 minutes; then uncover and let finish - probably another 10 minutes will make your dessert nice and crunchy.
