Hill Country Apple Crisp
6 medium apples, peeled
1/2 cup sugar
2 T lemon juice
4 T butter or margarine, melted
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp molasses, optional
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1 cup pecans, chopped
or you may omit all the ingredients above and use one can of apple pie filling, plus 1 cup pecans, chopped.
Core and slice apples as you would for apple pie. In a medium bowl, add cored and sliced apples, white sugar, and lemon juice. Stir until all apples are coated.
Add butter or margarine, oats, brown sugar, molasses (optional), cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir until apples are coated once more.
Place apple mixture into an 8 x 8 greased pan and spread evenly. Top with chopped pecans. Bake at 350 F for 40-45 minutes or until tender.
NOTE: If using canned apple pie filling (either store bought or canned yourself in one quart size), just spread into greased 8 x 8 pan, top with chopped pecans, and bake for time required.
