Professor's Apple Archimedes - Apple Crisp

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by superblondieno2

This is a recipe, I was quite sure what it was before I made it, but it turned out to be very similar to apple crisp. However the raisins are a very nice addition and the crisp is mixed in, not on top. It goes well with icecream or can be reheated by itself for breakfast. *I only used half of the butter recommended and it turned out just fine*

this was pretty good but a little boring and not much 'crisp' to it at all, more like baked bran apples. i added walnuts and didnt use any butter and it still baked up nicely if i make again i will add some vanilla and maybe some more spices (nutmeg, cloves..ect) but it was a fun and healthy way to use up some apples that were going soft, i used gala and ate it with whipped topping for breakfast!
