Yesterday's comment section got a little, um... feisty. I just want to say that I love the lovers and I love the haters. I hope we can all love each other. Because what the world needs now is love, sweet love. And apple crisp, preferably with a brown sugar oaty topping, and maybe a few raspberries sprinkled in.

You're in luck, because today is Tuesdays with Dorie, and I've got some apple crisp to share that fits your parameters exactly. Isn't that a lucky coincidence? Now there will be peace. Ohm.
I used my own recipe here even though Dorie's apple crisp was the TWD assignment. I love the recipe that I already have and I must make it at least once a year. It's fast. It's easy. It's cheap. It's divine. It's yours, tonight if you'll give it a try.
Money Saving Tips: Use any baking apple that you can find on sale. Granny Smith or Honey crisp would work well here. Use fresh or frozen raspberries, or cranberries if you've got them. You could also leave them out. Watch for butter to go dirt cheap over the next few weeks as stores try to lure in Thanksgiving shoppers. This would be a great alternative to pie for Thanksgiving, especially since you wouldn't have to make a crust.
Some pics: Mix the fruit in the dish.
Top it with streusel and it's ready to go. It's good. Oh yeah, it's good.
Golden Delicious and Raspberry Apple Crisp
Estimated Cost: $6.00
2 pounds Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, sliced (about 4 large apples)
3/4 cup raspberries (I used frozen)
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
8 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
Butter a 9 inch square baking dish. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put apples, raspberries and sugar right into the prepared baking dish and stir them around. In a separate medium bowl, combine oats, flour, brown and cinnamon. Rub in butter with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Bake until mixture is bubbly and topping is browned, about 40 minutes.
One last thing before you go. It's time for me to again humbly ask you to vote for my French's recipe. I've made it to the semi finals, along with 20 other recipes. 5 of us will make the cut and be invited to the spring Cook-Off in NYC and be eligible for a shot at the $25,000 prize. But I need your help. Just click here and vote for lucky number seven, that's me. You can vote every day until November 25th. Thank you so much, good and kind readers.
