Winning Apple Crisp

1 cup all-purpose flour 
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened

4 cups chopped peeled apples

1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water

Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a large bowl, combine first four ingredients. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press half into a greased 2-1/2 quart baking dish or 9-inch square baking pan. Cover with apples.

In a small sauce pan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, water, and vanilla. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thick and clear. Pour over apples. Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture.

Bake 60-65 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm, with ice cream if desired. Yield: 8 servings
