Apple Crisp

I was looking for an easy, yet delicious dessert a few weeks ago. I flipped all the way through my "Desserts to Try" binder and only found one thing that looked tempting: Apple Crisp. Ironically, in the end I didn't use the recipe I had pulled out but instead a recipe from one of my cookbooks.
Apple Crisp is such a good dessert to make because it's relatively quick and easy to put together but the result is fantastic! I reduced the sugar {in both the filling and topping} from the original recipe and we found it was still plenty sweet.

3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar (Can reduce slightly)

   1.  In a 9x9 pan or 2 qt baking dish combine first four ingredients.
   2.  In a medium bowl combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over filling.
   3.  Bake in a 350 oven for 35-45 minutes or until the top is nicely browned.
