Apple crisp

From The Vegetarian Epicure

1 kgGranny Smiths or other tart, crisp cooking apples
1/4 cupsugar
1/2lemon, juiced
1 teaspooncinnamon

1/2 cupplain flour
1/2 cupsugar
1/4 cupbutter, cut into pieces
1 tablespooniced water
1/2 cuprolled oats

Peel, quarter and core the apples, then chop into fat pieces. Toss the apples with the sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon and spread evenly in a baking dish about 30 x 15 cm.

Put the flour, sugar, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg into a food processor, and pulse for a few moments until you have something resembling coarse meal. Add the iced water, and process for a few seconds, just until the mixture starts to clump together. Add the oatmeal and pulse for 3 or 4 seconds only.

Press this mixture together with your fingers, then break it up and scatter it evenly over the apples. Bake the crumble in a 180C oven for about 40 minutes, or until the apples are bubbling and the top is golden brown. Serve warm, with cream or vanilla ice-cream.

Serves 4-6.
