  • 4 large apples (peeled, cored, and thinly sliced) (I used 2 large Granny Smith and 2 large Honeycrisp)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar (1/2 -3/4 cup depending on the sweetness of your apples)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Crumb Topping

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the oven to 375F degrees. Butter an 8x8 baking dish set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine the apple slices, lemon juice, vanilla, dark brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 2 tablespoons of flour. Toss to evenly coat all the apples. 
  • In a medium-size bowl combine the butter, oats, flour, dark brown sugar, and salt. Cut the butter into the other ingredients with a pastry cutter until the mixture is crumbly.
  • Spread the crumb topping evenly over the apples.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until the apples are soft and tender.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
