Apple Crisp

  • 6 apples
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 cup quick oats
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter

Slice apples.
Mix apple slices, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl.
Melt the butter (over the fire: take two pots, fill one pot about 1/4 way with water, put the butter in the other pot and place it inside the water)
Mix oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and butter to make crust.
Press half the crust mix into the bottom and sides of the dutch oven.
Pour the apples onto the crust.
Cover apples with the rest of the crust mix.
Bake covered about 45 minutes at 350 degrees, until top crust is light brown and apples are tender.

Serves about 8

This is probably one of the easiest dutch oven recipes to make, and the end product is good quality. It's not a meal on its own, but paired with something cooked over the fire or in another dutch oven it would make for a good treat for desert. One good thing about the ingredients are that the only perishable thing is the apples, and they could last in your bag for a 7 day canoe trip. One tip I would give to anyone making this is to put more heat on top rather than on the bottom. I put too much heat on the bottom and it ended up being burned in some places. I would recommend 4-5 coals on the bottom and 8 on top. P.S: it would go really well with some ice cream on the side!
