Yield: 6 Servings
|6 cups||Peeled; cored, and thinly sliced apples (about 7 apples)|
|2 tablespoons||Fresh lemon juice|
|½ cup||White or brown sugar; firmly packed|
|½ cup||Rolled old-fashioned oats|
|¼ cup||All-purpose flour|
|½ teaspoon||Ground cinnamon|
|6 tablespoons||Butter; cut into pieces|
|½ cup||Chopped nuts; lightly toasted|
Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter a shallow 8-cup ovenproof pan.
In a large bowl toss the apple slices with the lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of the sugar. Spread the slices in the buttered pan. In the same bowl mix the remaining sugar, oats, flour, and cinnamon. With your fingertips rub the butter into the dry ingredients until it sticks together in crumbles, then mix in the nuts. Scatter the topping over the apple slices. Put the pan in the oven and bake until the topping is brown and crisp and the apples tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
NOTES : The oatmeal in this version of an old favorite gives crunch; add nuts or not, as you like. Use peaches, pears, plums, or another fruit.
