- 6 apples, (McIntosh, Courtland or other cooking apple)
- 2 tbsp. white sugar
- 1 ¾ tsp. ground cinnamon,divided
- 1 ½ tsp. lemon juice
- 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- ¾ cup old fashioned oats
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup butter or margarine, diced into small cubes
- pinch of salt
- Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter an 8×8 baking dish, or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
- Prepare apples. Peel if you wish, but not necessary. Core and slice into chunks and place in a mixing bowl, sprinkle with granulated sugar, ¾ tsp. of the cinnamon and lemon juice. Stir to combine, and then transfer to the prepared baking dish.
- In a separate mixing bowl, add topping ingredients (brown sugar, oats, flour, 1 tsp cinnamon, salt, and diced cold butter). Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the oat mixture, using a slight downward twisting motion, until mixture resembled pea-sized crumbs. Alternatively, you can use two forks or even your hands to cut butter into the mixture.
- Spread topping over apples in baking dish, and gently pat to even it out. Bake 40-50 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.
- Serve warm with ice cream if available!
