My First Simple Apple Crisp

  You see, I never order Apple Crisp when I am out for dinner. There's always something with chocolate I'd rather order, something better than a dessert made of fruit. Today I decided to make a pie with the beautiful apples I had just bought but time seemed to fly by this afternoon and I ran out of time to make a pie. So, Apple Crisp it was. So here, without further adieu, is my first SIMPLE apple crisp.
Sammy peeled the apples (I used 5) and I chopped them up.
 I tossed the apples in cinnamon. I used 2 tsp. but I love cinnamon so I like lots.
 For the topping it's 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 3/4 cup of brown sugar & 1tsp of Nutmeg. Mix it together with 1/2 cup of melted butter or margarine.
 Scoop the mixture onto the apples. Cover it completely, the mixture won't spread when baking (it just gets crisp!)
My very first apple crisp. Simple. But Brian said it was delicious (he was a willing guinea-pig). I think it needed a little something else, but for my first try I am pleased with myself.

Yummm! Looks good! I have never seen it done with flour before ... I'll have to try it! We've always done it with oats and pecans :)
