Apple Crisp


Combine the first five ingredients in a work bowl.  Add the butter, and working with two knives or a pastry cutter, shred the it into small rice-sized granules.  Mix in the rolled oats by hand (mixing in by hand helps retain the texture or oatmeal). 

Place apples in a greased 8 or 9 inch square pan.  Drizzle bourbon over apples, if desired.  Spoon flour mixture evenly over the apples.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven 40-45 minutes until browned.

Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.

Makes 6-8 servings.
