Tip: An automated apple peeler will reduce the preparation time in half.
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Peel and slice apples into a baking dish.
- Mix together flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, oatmeal, and spices. Cut in* butter until it becomes crumbly. Sprinkle topping over sliced apple. Add chopped nuts if desired.
*Cut In: To combine dry ingredients with shortening, butter or margarine by "cutting" the dry ingredients in with a pastry blender or two knives. As the dry ingredients are cut into the fat ingredients they begin to form clumps.
- Bake in preheated oven 1 hour. Serve warm or at room temperature. Top with ice cream and/or whipped topping (optional).
- A crisp, tart apple is recommended.
