Posted in : Dessert on by : Tom


  • 3 pounds lbs of apples (Granny Smith, Gala, Pink Lady)
  • 2 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar (tightly packed)
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/2 Stick of chilled butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


  1. In a mixing bowl add lemon juice
  2. Peel and core the apples. (I prefer to do the apples 1 at a time to keep them from turning brown)
  3. Cut apples into uniform chunks and put in bowl with lemon juice and coat apples (the lemon juice will keep the apples from turning brown)

  4. In another bowl mix brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg
  5. Pour brown sugar mixture over apples and mix until evenly coated
  6. In a mixing bowl combine rolled oats, granulated sugar and flour and mix together
  7. Cut butter into small pieces and place into bowl with oats mixture
  8. Using a fork, mix up butter into mixture until mixture forms pea sized crumbles (You can also use a large wire whisk for more uniform clumps)

  9. Mix in walnuts/pecans
  10. Grease a 9 inch baking dish and spread the apple mixture on the bottom of the dish.
  11. Cover apples with crumb mixture.
  12. Cook for 30 – 45 minutes at 375°, or until the apples are soft and topping is browned slightly.

Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and whip cream
