Serves 8-10

Ingredients

4-5 medium sized seasonal apples

½ cup flour

¾ cup packed light brown sugar

¾ teaspoon cinnamon

⅛ teaspoon nutmeg

Pinch of salt

½ cup oats

6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces

Method

Peel and core the apples. Cut the peeled apples into ¼-½ inch slices and place them in a greased 8×8 baking dish. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375°F

Combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Stir in oats.

Cut the butter into the flour mixture using two knives or a pastry blender. The mixture should resemble coarse crumbs.

Sprinkle the flour mixture over the apples and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly. Let cool on a wire rack.

Serve warm, and with ice cream if desired.
