Woodchuck Apple Crisp

Little is better in the fall than an apple crisp. This recipe has a twist in a bottle of hard cider that gets reduced down and added to the filling. It adds an amazing extra oomph to the crisp; truly delicious.

Woodchuck Apple Crisp
7 medium apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1 12-oz bottle hard cider (I used the Woodchuck Fall Limited Release for this)
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons all purpose flour

1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
2 cups quick cook oats
3/4 cup all purpose flour
8 tablespoons butter, melted

Pour cider into small saucepan over medium-high heat and reduce to a half cup of liquid. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice and vanilla.

In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Add apples and toss until evenly coated. Drizzle the reduced cider mixture over the apples and toss to combine.

Pour apple mixture in a buttered baking dish. 

Mix together the brown sugar, oats and flour, slowly pour in butter, mixing with a fork until well distributed and crumbly. Sprinkle topping evenly over the fruit.

Bake for 45 minutes at 350.
