I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to bake this for a local women’s homeless shelter. I like to make the recipe with Honeycrisp or Golden Delicious apples—or a blend of the two. —Char Morse, Whitehall, Michigan

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 large Honeycrisp or Golden Delicious apples, peeled and sliced (about 6 cups)
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Optional: Vanilla ice cream, caramel sundae syrup and salted pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt until crumbly. Add flour and oats; mix well. Press 3 cups oat mixture into the bottom of a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.
  2. In another bowl, mix the first 5 filling ingredients. Add apples and vanilla; toss to combine. Spoon over oat layer. Dot with butter; sprinkle with remaining oat mixture.
  3. Bake, uncovered, until golden brown and apples are tender, 45-50 minutes. If desired, serve with toppings.
