Apple Crisp Recipe – Paula Deen

Last night I needed to make a late night dessert to go with the movie I rented.  I had all the ingredients for an apple crisp, plus I had some Breyers Vanilla ice cream.  The dessert was soooo comforting.  I had a group of my closest girlfreinds over and we watched The Devil Wears Prada.  What a great night!  I owe it all to Paula Deen! 

Apple Mixture:
10 cups apples, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup golden raisins

Topping Mixture:
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups oats
2 tablespoons lemon zest
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cardamom

Vegetable oil or cooking spray

Combine all of the ingredients for the apple mixture in a bowl. In another bowl, cut the butter into the flour and stir in the remaining topping ingredients. Spray the interior of a camp Dutch oven with cooking spray or wipe with vegetable oil. Spread the apple mixture in the bottom of the camp Dutch oven. Top with the topping mixture. Bake at 350 degrees F by placing 8 coals under the camp Dutch oven and 16 coals on top of the lid. Continue cooking until the apples are cooked and the topping is brown. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
