Kool Apple Crisp

This was a spur-of-the-moment idea to use up some apples that were getting a bit past their prime.  It is a great way to use apples that aren't "baking apples."  The lemon drink mix gives the apples some tartness that most "eating apples" don't have.

  •  4-5 medium eating apples, cored and cut in wedges
  •  1/4 Cup sugar
  •  2 Tb flour
  •  1 pkg lemonade drink mix (unsweetened)
  •  Dash of salt

Top with:
  •  1/2 Cup rolled oats
  •  1/2 Cup brown sugar
  •  1/4 Cup flour
  •  1/2 tsp cinnamon
  •  1/4 Cup butter or margarine (1/2 a stick)

Mix until sugar is blended in. Spread mixture in the bottom of a 13x9 baking pan.

Combine topping ingredients, cutting butter into mixture until it is the consistency of coarse crumbs.

Sprinkle topping evenly over apples. Bake at 375 about 45 to 50 minutes.
