Apple crisp is pretty much the best. Here's how my recipe currently stands!
7–9 Granny Smith apples
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon cardamom
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup oats
1 cup cold margarine
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Core, peel, and slice the apples into a 9x13 pan. In a bowl, mix the spices with 3 tablespoons each sugar and flour. Pour into the pan, and mix well with the apples.
In a bowl, mix the brown sugar, flour, oats, and (optional) walnuts, and slice in the butter. Avoid getting the butter too warm or over-mixing. Spread the topping over the apples and bake uncovered at 375˚F for 45 minutes.
Optional: Replace 2 apples with 1½ cups chopped rhubarb, increasing the white sugar to ⅔ cup.
