Red Delicious Apple Crisp

I love my apple pie, but Amy always begs for apple crisp, without the bottom crust. My recipes are very similar. I just use brown sugar in the apple crisp topping and do not add any extra sugar to the apples. Red Delicious apples are so sweet that they do not need extra sugar when baked in this recipe. Granny Smith's are my favorite for pies, but sweeter apples that breaks down a little more are just fine when prepared in a cobbler or crisp. This is such an easy recipe and is great to prepare with your children or grandchildren

Combine 1/3 cup brown sugar, 3/4 cup flour, 1 to 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 6 tbs butter in a bowl. Cut the butter into pats, and mix together sugar, flower and butter with a fork or even better, a cook's favorite tools, clean hands.
  Select 5 or 6 Red Delicious apples, peel and chop.
Place in baking dish that is not too deep. There is no need to oil dish- apples will make plenty of juice. Sprinkle crumb topping evenly over apples and bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until apples are tender and juice is bubbly.
Yummy goodness in just a few minute! - Delicious served with ice cream while still warm or if you live alone - keep a fork handy and take a bite when you walk by!
