INGREDIENTS

Filling
6 apples
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tbsp fresh grated ginger
1/4 cup Cha-cha Lima
1/4 cup of sugar
2 tbsp Torani Gingerbread syrup
2 tbsp flour

Topping
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup Iowa Nice Spice
2 tbsp Torani Gingerbread syrup
1/4 tsp salt
12 tbsp butter (1 1/2 sticks), chilled and cut into small pieces
1/2 cup nuts, coarsely chopped and toasted (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat the oven to 350. In a large bowl, toss the apples, lemon juice, Cha-cha Lima, Torani Gingerbread syrup, and flour. Pour the apple mixture into a buttered 2-quart baking dish. In another large bowl, mix the flour, oats, Iowa Nice, Torani Gingerbread syrup, and salt. Work the butter into the flour mixture with your fingers just until it comes together and forms large clumps. Fold nuts into mixture. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the fruit. Bake the apple crisp until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden brown and crisp, about 45 minutes.
