    Had to give into the sweet tooth today so I just made an apple crisp.
    Sliced apples and left the skins on with tons of cinamon and nut meg.
    I made the topping out of a combination of rolled oats, crunched up ancient grain cerial whole pine nuts and crunched up sesame snaps. All this of course with butter, more cinamon and brown sugar. Piled it real high too, can't wait!!

    Here's a basic recipe for apple crisp that you can throw together in just a few minutes:

    3 lbs apples, cored and sliced
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. nutmeg
    1/3 cup flour
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup rolled oats
    4 tablespoons cold butter
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

    Combined sliced or chopped apples in a bowl with the lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon and sugar, toss to combine.

    In another bowl combine the flour, granulated sugar and oats. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to mixture. Use a fork or a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the mixture until the mixture is crumbly. Add nuts if you like and combine.

    Dump the apple mixture into a buttered 9-inch square pan and top with the oat mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes until browned and bubbly. Serve warm or at room temp. Very good with vanilla ice cream.

    You can increase the proportion of apples or reduce the amounts of butter and sugar if you want to make this recipe a little healthier.

    We always had it served at lunch in elementary school... loved it.
    Probably not something I'd want to eat on a regular basis now, but still kind of a treat.

    Thank you! I made it but used half the apples, some blackberries, and some strawberries. I didn't have rolled oats, so I used that quick cooking oatmeal.

    The whole recipe turned out very well. It is so good. It also tastes very good with cottage cheese.

    Have never eaten rhubarb before. I'm not sure if I have even seen them at the grocery store.
