I received an abundance of granny smith apples from one of my co-workers, and while I love fruit, I am not so fond of sour apples. I couldn't let this generous gift go to waste so I scoured the interwebs and found this recipe for Apple Crisp. Double the crumb topping and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and I'm sure one could satisfy even the pickiest of palates!

3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Mix the chopped apples, pecans, flour, brown sugar, syrup, and lemon together and place in an 8 inch lightly greased cake pan.
Mix the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt together. With a hand mixer, blend the butter into the dry ingredients until pea-sized lumps form. Stir in the pecans and pour over the apple filling.
