Apple Crisp

7 or 8 medium-sized Granny Smith apples
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 Tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Butter (or spray with cooking spray) an oblong 2-quart baking dish.  Peel apples, cut into quarters, remove cores.  Cut quarters in half lengthwise, cut into 1/4″ slices, adding them to the baking dish as you go.  Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange juice and lemon juice, and toss with your hands until completely coated.

Topping:
1 cup whole wheat flour (or a combo of whole wheat and all-purpose)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup rolled oats
1.5 sticks cold butter, diced

Combine topping ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.  Mix on low speed until the mixture is crumbly and the butter is the size of peas.  Distribute evenly over the apples.  Place the dish on a sheet pan and bake for 1 hour until the top is brown and the apples are bubbly.  Serve warm with ice cream.
