Brennan's Vanilla Ice cream is a must for this crisp
Preheat oven to 350F and grease an 8X8 inch baking pan. Melt butter and let cool. Whisk together flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, salt, and brown sugar. Stir in oats, raisins (if using) and pecans, then stir in melted butter.
Toss apricots with lemon juice and granulated sugar and spread in baking pan. Squeeze topping into shagging chunks and scatter over apricots. Bake until bubbling, 40 to 50 minutes; cool at least 30 minutes, and serve with vanilla ice cream.
