Apple Crumble

Here is a delicious and very easy dessert I made for my parents and brother recently.

Apple Crumble

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Peel, core and slice 4 large Golden Delicious apples (about 3 pounds).
To the apples add 1/4 cup sugar, 1 lemon juiced, 1 T. flour, 1/2 t. cinnamon.  Mix well and pour into a lightly greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish.  Spread evenly.  Set aside.
In another bowl, mix 1 cup walnuts or pecans roughly chopped, 1 cup flour, 1 1/4 cups rolled oats, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar.

Add 1 stick butter.  Using a pastry cutter or fork, work butter into mixture.
I used a fork and "smooshed" the butter until pea-sized lumps are formed.
Top apples evenly with mixture and bake until apples are bubbly and topping is golden brown.  About 45 minutes.
The flash on the camera distorts the brown.  We enjoyed our warm apple crumble with whipped cream. 
This would also be amazing with ice cream--either vanilla or cinnamon ice cream.
