Apple Crisp (topping)

This is always a great backup dessert recipe if we have last minute company come or just want a delicious, warm treat. Made from staple food items (at least in my house), we always have the ingredients on hand!

Apple crisp topping:

2/3 C brown sugar
1/2 C flour
1/2 C oats
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/3 C Butter (slightly softened)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients EXCEPT butter all together. Mix butter in with a pastry cutter until crumbly texture. Sprinkle over apple pie filling. I say this because I only ever use home-canned apple pie filling--and my mom has the recipe for that one. It is SUPER delicious...nothing like it! :)

Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until browned.
Serve warm with ice cream (drizzled with caramel for extra yum!)

I love apple crisp, but I've had trouble finding a recipe because so many of them use a biscuit topping, and that's not what I want...Anyway, I am definitely going to have to find a way to work this into the menu soon!

You're right! All the ingredients are definitely available in the house. This one is keeper. I've always wanted to prepare apple crisp for my family but sometimes I don't have enough ingredients in my kitchen I have to resort to other dessert. But your recipe solved all my problems.
