Equipment

  • 8 x 8 Glass Baking Pan (Buttered)
  • Large Mixing Bowl

INGREDIENTS 

FRUIT

  • 2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • 4 Apples - 2 tart and 2 sweet
  • 2 Tbsp. Granulated Sugar
  • tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ cup AP Flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter (cold) - cut into small pieces

FOR THE TOPPING

  • ¾ cup Rolled Oats
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar - light or dark
  • ¼ cup Walnuts or Pecans - coarsely chopped
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 3 Tbsp. AP Flour
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 6 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter (cold) - cut into small pieces

ADDITIONAL TOPPING ADD-ONS

  • ¼ tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • tsp. Ground Ginger
  • tsp. Pepper
  • Pinch Ground Cloves

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Position a rack in the center of the oven.
  • Place the lemon juice in a large bowl. Peel, core, and cut the apples into 1/2-inch wedges, tossing the pieces in the lemon juice as they are cut, to prevent browning.
  • Add the granulated sugar, cinnamon, and flour. Toss to combine and pour into a buttered 8-by-8-inch square or oval baking pan. Scatter the butter on top.
  • In the same bowl, Combine the oats, brown sugar, nuts, flour, salt, and optional spices. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender, a fork, or two knives.
  • Sprinkle the topping evenly over the fruit and bake on the center rack for 40 to 45 minutes, until the topping is dark golden and the apples are bubbling. Cool slightly on a wire cooling rack. Scoop out with a large spoon to serve in bowls.

Notes

Pear version… Use four or five Bosc pears. Switch lemon juice for lime, omit the cinnamon, and double the ginger in the topping.
Peaches or Nectarines…  Peel and slice 6 fruit and toss in orange juice instead of lemon.  Add 1 teaspoon of orange zest to the topping and increase the flour to 1/4 cup.
