Apple Crisp

It's an accepted fact that school lunches are gross. Ya they try, but they usually fail. Like hot dogs that bounce on the floor, gross fish sticks, and luke warm lumpy mashed potatoes? SIGN ME UP! jk, don't. This was the case with my middle school, except for one dessert that they somehow made incredible. When we saw that the "apple crisp" was on the menu for lunch, we went into a frenzy. Tender apples got a nice caramel coat of baked brown sugar and butter and then got topped with a crumble crispy topping thats totally 2D4. It's simple, so easy, and when eaten with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, is a gift from the Gods above. Well, this is a homage to one of the only good things about middle school. SO make it, bake it, and relive those days of braces, livestrongs, and instant messenger while snacking on something that eases the pain of those oh-so-fun days.
Apple Crisp

5 apples, sliced into half moons
3 tbs butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

crumble topping
1 cup flour
3/4 brown sugar
1 1/2 cup oatmeal
2 tbs maple syrup
1 stick butter, cold

Recipe: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, add the brown sugar and let sit without stirring for about 2 minutes. Add the cinnamon and apples and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Pour the mixture into a greased casserole dish.
Meanwhile, combine all the ingredients for the topping. Combine using an electric mixer or your hands to cut the butter into the dry ingredients. Crumble the topping on top of the apples. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown and apples are bubbling.
