Hooray for fall apples!!!
8 Medium Apples, Peeled, Cored and Sliced (Use a tart variety. Pink Lady is my favorite, but Granny Smith are good too.)
1 1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon (I cannot recommend Penzey's China Cinnamon enough. It is ahhhh-mazing!)
1/2 C. and 2 Tbsp. Turbinado Sugar
1 1/2 C. Quick Oats (Be sure to check the labeling on your oats if you are on a gluten free diet!)
1/2 Stick Unsalted Butter, Softened
1 Pinch of Salt
Preheat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, toss the apples with 2 Tbsp. sugar and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the oats, butter salt and remaining sugar and cinnamon. Pour the apples into a low wide baking dish (a Pirex casserole dish work well) and pat down. Pour the oat mixture on top and spread out to cover the apples evenly. Bake on the lower middle rack until the apples are soft and the topping is browned. Serve hot and, of course, with ice cream.
