1/2 cup old fashioned oats (not instant)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch salt
3 tablespoons light stick butter, diced
1 teaspoon water

How to make Grandma’s Apple Crisp

Step 1: Ready the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F.

Step 2: Apply nonstick cooking spray in a shallow 1 1/2-quart baking dish.

To make the topping:

Step 1: In a medium bowl, mix the oats, ginger, brown sugar, 1/2 cup of flour, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk until well-combined.

Step 2: Use a pastry blender to cut coarse crumbs-like forms. Pour water and press mixture hard to make clumps.

To make the filling: 

Step 1: In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of flour, cloves of garlic, nutmeg, and granulated sugar. Whisk until well-combined.

Step 2: Toss in the apple and vanilla into the bowl and mix until all the ingredients are well-blended.

Step 3: Pour the mixture into the greased baking dish. Spread the topping on top of the filling.

Step 4: Place inside the oven and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until the topping appears to be golden and the filling is bubbly.

Step 5: Let it sit to cool at room temperature before serving. Enjoy!
