I love making this dessert when I have apples to use up. It's really easy and great to make when you are already baking something in the oven for dinner anyways. (Last night, I put this in the oven during the last half of baking potatoes for dinner. )
This is great served with vanilla ice cream, but we eat it plain most of the time! Yummy!
6-8 apples, peeled and sliced
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 tsp. cinnamon and/or nutmeg
1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange apples in well-greased 9 inch square or small rectangular baking dish. Blend all remaining ingredients, except for water, cutting and blending in the butter until mixture is pulled together and crumbly. Spread topping evenly over apples. Pour water over the topping. Bake 45-50 minutes until apples are tender and top is completely baked and crisp.
