Baked Apple Crisp

apple

8 apples (I use a firm apple)
4 tablespoons butter
⅓ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
crumble topping
½ cup flour
¼ cup oats
⅓ cup brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter, chilled and cut into cubes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
First, prepare the crumble topping. In a food processor pulse together flour, oats, brown sugar, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
Peel and chop 2 of the apples. Chop the tops off of the remaining 6 apples and use a melon baller to scoop out the core. Scoop out the remaining flesh. You don’t need to get every little bit out, just enough to make a “bowl” for the filling. Add chopped and scooped out apples, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon to a medium sauce pan and sauté over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from heat.
Fill scooped-out apples with apple filling from the sauce pan. Top with a generous amount of crumble topping.
Place stuffed apples on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until crumble topping is crispy. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of real Maple Syrup. Enjoy!
