Miss Kay's Apple Crisp

It's Apple Time!  I like fresh apples and this time of year is great.  I have been to two different apple orchards this year to get fresh apples.  I'm terrible I don't remember what kind of apples these are.  But on the the recipe.  I found this recipe in Miss Kay's new cookbook, Celebrating Family and Friends with Recipes for Every Month of the Year.  This cookbook has some really good recipes in it.
This was a really good apple crisp.  The topping stayed crisp and firm even the next day.
You can use fresh lemon juice and use either type of oats.
The topping needs to go in the freezer for a few minutes, so I am making it first. 1 cup all purpose flour.
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Mix that well.
Now cut up a stick of cold butter.
Add to the oat mixture
Then cut the butter into the oat mixture.
After the butter is the size of small peas, put it in the freezer while you cut up the apples.
Peel, core and slice the apples, toss with some lemon juice.
Add 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Toss the apples.
Take the crumb topping out of the freezer.
Add to the top of the apples.  Place in a preheated 350 oven and bake 50-60 minutes.
It smells so good.  I wish I had some vanilla ice cream to put one little scoop on top.
The nutmeg is a nice touch to the apples.  Make this at home tonight but make sure you have some ice cream.
