Apple Crisp!

I made a apple crisp over the weekend for the man.......as he's diabetic, its sugarfree...and was very good, not much left now but I thought I'd post the recipe, if you can have sugar, just use the same amount as the Splenda.......
Sugar free Apple Crisp
6 or 7 large apples, peeled and sliced
2 cups water
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 cup Splenda
Simmer until the apples are tender (don't overcook)
remove the apples to your Pammed baking pan, saving the juice
Thicken the juice with 3 T. cornstarch dissolved in 1/2 c. water
Pour thickened juice over apples.
1 cube melted butter (I didn't say it was lo cal!)
1 cup flour
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup Splenda
1 t. salt
Mix well and sprinkle over apples. Bake at 350 degrees
for about 40 minutes.
Don (our oldest son) brought home some wonderful huge Honey Crisp apples that were perfect for this dessert........I would use brown sugar in the topping if I could. It smelled so good while it was cooking.........you could use the new brown sugar Splenda has come out with but it does have some sugar in it........and also add other fruit besides the apples, golden raisins would be wonderful or fresh cranberries.
