Autumn Apple Crisp {Foodie Friday}

By Kayla Banzet, An Imperfect Prairie
This past week I celebrated Friendsgiving with a close group of friends. Friendsgiving is just like Thanksgiving but instead of having a get together with family, it’s when friends gather and celebrate the year of friendship and share what they are thankful for.

During our Friendsgiving, one of the couples offered to host the dinner at their new home. They provided the pot roast and the rest of us signed up for a side dish. The weather dropped into the low 20’s so I decided to make a warm, autumn dessert. This apple crisp is very easy and the group gobbled it up quickly. I hope you enjoy it just as much as they did!

4 cups of sliced apples (I used Fuji)
5 tablespoons of butter, cold (separate 1 tbsp of this for greasing the bowl)
4 tablespoons of granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon  salt (divided into 1/8 tsp)
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup oat flour or all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a small baking dish with one tablespoon of the butter. I used a 9 X 13 pan.
Peel apples and then cut into small slices.
Mix together the granulated sugar, cinnamon and 1/8 of the salt. Toss the sliced apples into the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
Spread the apples across the pan evenly. In the same bowl combine the rest of the ingredients in a medium size bowl and blend with a spoon. Drop in the cold slices of butter and mix together with your hands until the mixture is crumbly.
Sprinkle the topping over the apples evenly and bake for 40 minutes or until the apples are tender and golden.
