I love this dish for dessert, fresh and hot, topped with vanilla soymilk or ice cream (alone it is only medium sweet). Or for breakfast. Or for a snack after a long walk. Mmmmmm
4-6 apples, peeled and cored and chopped into bite-size pieces
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup oatmeal, uncooked
2 tablespoons pecans, chopped
3 tablespoons almonds, sliced
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
4 teaspoons sugar
1 dash salt
1 Preheat oven to 375.
2 Place butter in dish at room temperature to soften.
3 Chop apples. Place bite-size pieces in 8 inch square or round baking dish, stirring in the lemon juice as you go, to keep them from browning.
4 In a medium bowl, mix flour, oatmeal, sugar, salt and spices. Smush in the butter until everything is well-mixed. Add nuts and mix some more.
5 Sprinkle topping evenly over apples (do not mix them together - the flour mixture goes on top of the apple pieces).
6 Bake at 375 for 45 minutes, or until topping is dark golden brown.
7 Let cool somewhat before serving, as the juices get bubbly hot in the oven. Enjoy!
