Apple Crisp With Almonds

The smell of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger dance with the apples as they put on a beautiful production for my nose (and kitchen).  They perform Apple Crisp With Almonds...a fall favorite!

Apple Crisp has always been a favorite of mine...all year round.

When I was first married, I made the topping from a box of store bought ingredients.
I know, I know...what was I thinking!

The topping is easy to make...I usually have all the ingredients on hand.

For years now, I have been making apple crisp 'the real way'.
But, as with many recipes, I like to experiment.

I like to use different apples (depending what I have on hand).
Many times, I use more than one variety.

I have played with the spices over the years...

Nutmeg adds great flavor and the smell is divine!

Ginger adds an extra zing to the already enticing dish.  

Then I started adding almonds to the crisp...
Oh my, how the almonds add such texture and taste to an already delicious crisp topping!

Here's the recipe:

Apple Crisp With Almonds
6 cups of peeled, sliced apples
2 to 4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon of each - cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger
1/4 cup butter, cup up
1/2 cup almonds

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Prepare the apples
Peel and slice the apples.
Using THIS makes the perfect sized slices, and removes the core.
Stir 2 to 4 tablespoon of sugar with apples (depending on how sweet the apples are).
Place the apples into a deep dish pie pan.

Prepare the topping
In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, and spices.
Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
THIS makes cutting in butter so much easier.
Gently fold in the almonds.

Sprinkle the topping over the apples.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 40 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is browned.

I enjoy mine warm out of the oven.
