Ginger Apple Crisp/Galette

The perfect thing to bring on Thanksgiving! (Shout out to KatyJ)
You could easily do this without the galette-- just put the apple mixture topped by the oats mixture in a buttered pan.

Peel, core, and chop 3-4 large to medium apples
Place in a bowl and toss lightly with:
1 T. grated ginger
1 T. chopped crystalized ginger
a large handful of raspberries or cranberries (raw or dried)
a little less than 1/2 C. sugar
a good shake of cinnamon
2 T. Flour

In another bowl mix with fingers:
1 C. oats
1/2 C. brown sugar
3 T. Flour
1/4 C. butter
a good handful of chopped walnuts or pecans

Mix with a fork in a bowl:
2.5 C. flour
1t. sugar
1t. salt
1/4 C. water
2/3 C. oil

mix until it comes together as a dough and then roll out a big circle on a piece of foil.

dump the apples in the center and then pull up the edges of the dough around them-- creating a bowl effect. top with oat mixture and slide the whole thing onto a cookie sheet. Bake for about an hour @ 350*
