Easy Apple Crisp

One of my favorite desserts around the holidays is apple crisp, and I used to buy it for our Christmas parties because I didn't know how easy it was to make.  Tomorrow evening Aubergine Emporium is hosting their annual holiday event and so I decided to learn how to make my very own apple crisp recipe.  I found some recipes on the internet and this is my version.  It passed "the husband" test so I think it's a good recipe to share with you.
Homemade Apple Crisp

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly butter a 9x13 baking pan.

2 cans prepared apple pie filling.

Spread the apple pie filling in your prepared pan.  I sprinkled a tiny bit of cinnamon and nutmeg over the top.  Not too much though.  About a 1/2 tsp. of each. 

For the crumb topping, mix the following ingredients in a large bowl.

3/4 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 white or yellow cake mix
1 stick plus 2 Tablespoons of melted butter.

Mix it all in a bowl and spoon over the top of the apples.

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes then cover with tinfoil and bake another 25 minutes.  Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy.  Yum yum!!!

I love apple crisp! It looks great too! The recipe is similar to a dump cake. I taught my kids to make it and it's so easy to do...perfect for this busy time of year!
