Apple Crisp - 6 Points Plus

This apple crisp is delicious.  The recipe is from the Weight Watcher web site.  My family didn't know they were eating "points plus" when they snarfed down a healthy dessert!

4 large apple(s), peeled, cored, cut into 1/8-inch slices (6 cups sliced apples)
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup(s) packed light brown sugar, divided
6 tsp Tapioca, or other brand
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg, or freshly grated nutmeg (fresh preferred)
1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
4 Tbsp regular butter, melted

Peel apples.

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Place rack in bottom third to middle of oven.

In a large bowl, toss together apple slices, lemon juice, 1/4 cup sugar (I used Splenda), tapioca, cinnamon and nutmeg; let stand for about 30 minutes.

Spoon apple mixture into an ungreased 9-inch square baking dish, or glass or ceramic pie plate; cover loosely with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, to make topping, in a small bowl, combine flour with remaining 1/2 cup of sugar; mix until completely blended. Add melted butter; work in thoroughly with fingertips.

After pie has baked for 30 minutes, remove from oven and discard foil. Sprinkle topping over apples and bake, uncovered, until apples bubble and topping turns golden, about 35 to 45 minutes.

Cool at least 2 hours before serving. Slice into 8 pieces and serve. Yields 1 slice per serving

You will be amazed at how quickly this disappears!
