“I adapted this recipe from an old cookbook recipe. I am famous for this in my family.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. The ingredients as listed should make enough to fill an 8x8 square baking dish. For a 13x9 baking dish, I usually quadruple the recipe.
  2. For the apples, tart is usually better. Apples will cook down, so for 13x9, 2 bags of apples usually does the trick. This will vary on the size of bag, and size of apples.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  4. Spray a 13x9 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  5. Peel and slice apples, put into large bowl.
  6. Sprinkle an extra 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of sugar on top of apples. Mix cinnamon and sugar through apples (I use my hands for this).
  7. Place apples into baking dish.
  8. In medium to large bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, oats, butter and cinnamon. Use your hands, it works the best.
  9. Place the mixture on top of the apples, packing it down lightly to prevent it from falling off.
  10. Place baking dish on top of cookie sheet to prevent ooze from dripping down into oven.
  11. Bake at 375 for approximately 30 minutes or until top is golden brown (time may vary depending on your oven).
