Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch-square (or 2-quart) deep baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Combine apples, 1/4 cup brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Toss to mix. Transfer to the prepared baking dish, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine flour, the remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt in the bowl of a food processor. Process to blend. Add butter and pulse until crumbly.

  • Remove the foil from the baking dish and scatter the flour mixture evenly over the apples. Bake, uncovered, until the topping is browned and the apples are soft and bubbling, 30 to 35 minutes more. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.
