Welcome guests with a warm and easy to make apple crisp!

The season is here to celebrate friends and family, and to welcome guests with something a little special and warm from the oven.  The holidays find many people short on time, ruling out the “from scratch” crust that makes a pie a stand out.  The Company C work-around?  Try this simple Apple Crisp, a seasonally perfect dessert that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Here’s what you will need to assemble:

1 cup granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, 10 cups Cortland apples (Macintosh are worthy here, too), 1 cup quick cooking oats, ½ cup water, ¼ teaspoon baking soda, ¼ teaspoon baking powder, 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 cup brown sugar packed tightly, ½ cup melted butter.
