Recipe by AmyZoe

This is different from any apple crisp I've ever made because of the nuts, and I absolutely love it with vanilla ice cream. I can't think of anything more delicious to warm you up on a cold winter day. I found this recipe recently in a women's magazine like Ladies Home Journal or Better Homes and Gardens, but I don't remember which. I substituted walnuts for pecans, and it was still to-die for. Serving size is estimated.

  4. Add butter pieces and quickly work them into the mix using your fingertips, until they are evenly distributed and about the size of peas.
  5. Butter and flour a 9x12 inch baking pan; spoon in apple mixture.
  6. Spread topping over apples, patting down with your hands making sure fruit is covered.
