Ingredients

For the apples

  • 1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 Cups peeled, sliced baking apples (about 5 large apples)

For the crisps

  • 1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 Cup uncooked oats
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 Cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 Cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 Cup Sargento Artisan Blends Shredded Double Cheddar Cheese

Directions

For the apples

Combine the brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a large bowl and mix well. Add the apples and toss to coat well. Spoon the apples into an 8-by-8-inch glass baking dish.

 

For the crisps

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the brown sugar, flour, oats, and cinnamon for the topping in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the walnuts and sprinkle evenly over the apple mixture in the pan.

Bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until the apples are tender and the topping is golden brown. Top with the cheese and let stand for 30 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.
