Oat Apple Crisp

I wanted to find a new apple crisp recipe for my parents' combined birthday party last week.  My sister-in-law made a chocolate dessert and I was supposed to make a non-chocolate one.  I came across this recipe that used a yellow cake mix, which I have used before in a crisp recipe and loved, but this one also used oats, brown sugar and other things along with the cake mix.  It turned out really good!  I just made it again last night for our big family Sunday dinner.  It is the perfect fall dessert - served hot with vanilla ice cream - MMMMMM!
Oat Apple Crisp
from Taste of Home

7 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples (about 7 medium) (I used granny-smith)
1 c sugar
1 TBSP flour
1 tsp cinnamon
dash of salt
1/4 c water
1 yellow cake mix (dry)
3/4 c quick-cooking oats
1/3 c butter, softened
1/4 c packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda

Place apples in a greased 2-1/2 qt shallow baking dish (I used a 9X13 pan).  In a small bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt; sprinkle over apples.  Drizzle with water.  In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, oats, butter, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda.  (I used my *clean* hands to mix the butter in, mashing the butter into the dry ingredients between my fingers).  Sprinkle over apples.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown.  Serve warm with ice cream.  Yield: 8 servings
