Aunt Norma's Apple Crisp

My Aunt Norma is the best cook I know. She made this yummy fall dessert for family night a couple of years ago. The topping is crispy and chewy and has the perfect amount of spices. Your house will smell so good while it's baking. If you can get your hands on some Schwans Vanilla Ice Cream and serve it on the side you will be in apple crisp heaven.

4 c. sliced, pared baking apples (about 6)
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats (not instant)
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/3 cup soft butter

Place sliced apples in bottom of greased pan or baking dish. Blend rest of ingredients until crumbly. Spread over apples. Bake 30-35 minutes at 375 degrees until apples are tender and topping is golden brown. Serve with a warm scoop of vanilla ice cream.

It all sounds delicious! We always have a roast dinner on Sundays unless we go out to eat. Apple crisp sounds like apple crumble - my favourite sweet!
