Forgotten Apple Crisp with Butterscotch

I found some apples in the fridge!  Truth be told,  I forgot about them and yes, I could have grabbed one and ate it but then my family would have been deprived of this crispy, bubbly, and scrumptious dessert.  This is such an easily prepared dessert and a cinch when you need a dessert on the fly. 

Besides, the remaining apples more than likely would have been forgotten.  I don't have to get graphic, you all know what happens to produce forgotten in the fridge...

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a a 9x9 baking dish with butter (cooking spray will work too).


Filling

4 Gala apples or whatever kind you forgotten about in your fridge, peeled, cored and diced
1  bag butterscotch chips (leftovers from the holidays)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup AP flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 lemon, juiced
3 tablespoons butter cubed, plus more for preparing baking dish

Toss all of the above ingredients, except for the butter in a large bowl.  Place in prepared baking dish.  Dot with the butter.


Crispy Topping

3/4 cup AP flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
Pinch  of salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup chopped pecans

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, oats, and salt. Blend in the butter with a fork until it forms pea size lumps. Fold in the pecans and sprinkle over the apple filling mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 minutes. It will be bubbly and golden brown. 

Place dish on a trivet or rack and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.  TEN of the longest minutes of your life!

Bowl it or plate it next to a scoop of Dulce de Leche, Pecan Praline or Vanilla ice cream.  Really, try it sometime!
