Apple Crisp

When a group goes camping, and someone comes out with an entire case of apples, and says help yourself, what do you do?? You make a HUGE dutch oven full of apple crisp. It was such a hit, the others in the group restocked some of the supplies and we made another HUGE batch the next day camping, and topped it with vanilla ice cream.  Here is that recipe, so all can find it when they are camping with other friends and family.
As written will make a 1 1/2 quart casserole or 8 inch dutch oven. The bigger the dutch oven the more you will need, multiply the recipe as needed.

5-6 tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced
2 Tablespoons white sugar
2 Tablespoons lightly packed brown sugar
1.5 teaspoons cinnamon
2 Tablespoons butter, melted

3/4 C rounded flour
1/3 C rounded oatmeal
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 C lightly packed brown sugar
1/4 C butter cut into small pieces

Mix apples, both sugars, and cinnamon, ( in the dish you will cook it in 1 1/2 quart casserole or dutch oven) let sit till juices start to flow about 20 minutes.. Pour melted butter over apples.  Next mix your dry ingredients for the topping, cut in butter till crumbly, sprinkle over apple mixture.

If doing the casserole in the oven bake at 350 for about 30-40 minutes.

If doing the dutch oven, if your using the big 12 quart like I did, multiply all the ingredients by about 5 or 6.  To bake at 350, you will need 24 briquettes of charcoal, 16 on top and 8 below, go for about an hour or so, till the apples are tender.  Enjoy!!!
