~♥ Apple-Pecan Crisp ♥~

I have always been fond of crisps especially during the fall months...there's nothing better than filling your home with the wonderful smell of something baking in the oven!

~♥ Apple-Pecan Crisp ♥~
from Betty Crocker Fall Baking Oct/Nov 2009

2/3 cup maple-flavored syrup (I used the real maple syrup)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
8 large baking apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
1 pouch (1 lb. 1.5 oz.)  Betty Crocker oatmeal cookie mix
3/4 cup chopped pecans

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In large bowl, stir together syrup, flour and cinnamon until blended.  Add apples; toss until evenly coated.  Spread in ungreased 13 x 9 inch (3 quart) baking dish.
  • In same bowl, with pastry blender, cut butter into cookie mix until mixture looks like coarse crumbs.  Stir in pecans.  Crumble mixture over apples in baking dish.
  • Bake 30 minutes.  Very loosly cover with foil; bake 10 minutes to 15 minutes longer or until apples are tender.
As they say, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away."  What a wonderful way to get your apples!
