Shaker Gourmet: Apple Crisp

Our friend Quentin was in town visiting for the past several days and his very favorite food is apple crisp, so I made some last night for his last evening here. I've made it several times in the past but I think I finally came up with what is now the recipe I'll be using for now on.
Apple Crisp

2 cups apple cinnamon granola*
half cup vanilla almond granola*
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cups butter, melted
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 - 5 large apples, mix sweet & tart**, peeled/cored/sliced thin
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tablespoon white sugar
allspice (dash)

--Preheat oven to 350 degrees

--Butter 8x8 baking dish or 9-inch pie plate

--Layer one sort of apple, then another on top. Sprinkle with white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Put two (or three, depending on how many apples) more layers of apples, alternating kinds.

--In big bowl, mix granolas, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda together. Mix in melted butter.

--Carefully put granola mix on top of apples. Bake for about 45 - 50 minutes. Cool for 15 before serving.
