4 Medium Apples; Peeled, Cored and Sliced.
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/3 Cup Flour
1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
1/3 Cup Rolled Oats
4 Tbsp. (1/2 Stick) Butter
1/2 Cup Pecans or Walnuts (Optional)
1. Preheat your oven to 375 Degrees Fahrenheit (F). Grease the bottom and sides of an 9 inch pan with butter or shortening.
2. Toss the apples in a large bowl with lemon juice. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, then add it to the apples and stir well coating all the apples with the sugar and spices.
3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, and oats. Chop butter into small pieces and work into the oats with a fork or your hands until crumbly. If you're using nuts, stir them in with oats now.
4. Spread apples into the bottom of the pan, and sprinkle oat/flour mix on the top. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until apples are bubbling around the edges of the pan and topping is golden brown.
