Autumn in NY + fresh picked apples = heaven.
6-8 c. apples, peeled and sliced
3 Tbl. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 c. oatmeal (I prefer old-fashioned rather than instant)
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. chopped pecans (optional)
1/2 c. butter, melted
Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for serving
Combine apples, 3 Tbl. sugar, and 1 tsp. of cinnamon in a bowl. Transfer to a greased baking dish (this amount usually fits perfectly in my 7 x 11 pan). Thoroughly combine remaining ingredients (using your hands if necessary) and crumble over the top the of the apples. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes, or until the apples mixture starts bubbling. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream (or cold/reheated for breakfast the next morning :).
