Apple Crisp- Nitty Gritty- No Salt No Sugar No Fat

This recipe is from one of my Nitty Gritty Books- No Salt No Sugar No Fat Cookbook revised 1982 edition. It has a lot of tips and hints and quite a few good sounding recipes.

Apple Crisp
Crust
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup Grape Nuts cereal
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup unsweetened apple juice
Filling
2 cups slice apples
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup unsweetened apple juice
1 to 2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch or arrowroot
To make crust, combine dry ingredients. Stir in apple juice until mixture holds together. Press half of mixture in bottom and up sides of a non-stick 9-inch pie pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Save remaining crust for topping. To make filling, combine all ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer about 10 minutes. Apples should be only slightly tender. Remove apples and raisins with a slotted spoon and place in pie shell. Increase heat and continue cooking sauce until it thickens. Pour sauce over apples and raisins. Crumble remaining crust over filling. Bake in 375 degree oven for 30 minutes. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
