Apples are the essential fall fruit and this recipe is an easy weeknight dessert. The best part of this recipe is that many of the ingredients are items you have in your pantry. So purchase a bag of apples, and add this recipe to your Pinterest list of favorites. I also made this recipe with pumpkin seasoning vs. cinnamon, and it was delicious too!
TIP: I updated this recipe to save time and make it a weeknight dessert by not peeling the apples. It was still a family hit. The skin softens enough that you can save a step and make this weeknight friendly.
6 fuji or other sweet apple (chopped)
2 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
1 ½ teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup brown sugar
¾ cup old fashioned oats
¾ cup all purpose flour
½ cup unsalted butter (cold, cut into cubes)
Pinch of salt
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9x13 pan and set aside.
2. In a bowl, combine the chopped apples, granulated sugar, ¾ tsp of the cinnamon, and lemon juice. Stir lightly to combine. Place in the 9 x13 pan.
3. In a separate bowl make the topping, combine brown sugar, oats, flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, salt and diced cold butter. Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the mixture.
4. Spread the topping mixture over the apples in the pan.
5. Bake 40 minutes until golden and bubbly
