Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 inch pie pan. Set aside.
To make the filling, in a bowl, combine apple slices, sugar, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and flour. Mix well to coat the apples. Place apples in prepared baking dish.
To make the crisp topping, combine all topping ingredients together in a bowl and using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the butter into the ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle over the top of the apples.
Bake crisp in preheated oven for 25 - 30 minutes or until topping has browned and edges are bubbly. Allow to cool several minutes before serving.
