Easy apple crisp with dehydrated apples

Easy Apple Crisp

Fresh Ingredients
1 c. butter
Storage Ingredients
10 c. dehydrated apple slices
¼ c. bottled lemon juice

1 c. oats
1 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg
¼ tsp. salt
Butter a 9 x 13” cake pan. Fill with dehydrated apples and drizzle with lemon juice. Then pour in 6 cups of hot water and allow apples to soak for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. For topping, cut butter into ¼” pieces and toss with remaining dry ingredients. Carefully spoon topping onto re-hydrated apples. (Pan should be very full but will bake down.) Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour, or until lightly toasted on top. Best when served hot with vanilla ice cream.

This dessert can be prepared hours ahead of time, stored in the refrigerator, and then baked while your guests enjoy dinner. This recipe is totally foolproof, easier than apple pie, and tastes like something from your grandmother’s kitchen.
