Easy Apple Crisp

I recently bought a bunch of local apples at a fruit stand and wanted to make something yummy with them. I decided to make an apple crisp/crumble (mostly because I was too lazy to make a pie crust). It was so easy and absolutely delicious. In general, using firm apples, like granny smith create the best pies or crumbles, but I bought gala apples- whereas they are not as firm as granny smiths, they did stand up better than most apples.

5 gala or granny smith apples
1/2 lemon, juiced
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
vanilla ice cream for serving

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease a 8x8 pan. Set aside.

Peel and slice the apples into 1/3-inch slices. Toss with lemon juice and place in the bottom of the prepared pan. In a separate bowl mix together the sugar, flour, oats, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg until all ingredients are incorporated. Sprinkle over the apples and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Remove from over and serve in bowls with a scoop of ice cream on top!
