This truly is a quick recipe for when you want an apple dessert but don't have a lot of time. Only five ingredients. You can slice the apples while the butter is melting and the oven is preheating.
I wish I'd noted when I first made this, as I usually do with a recipe. It isn't even on a card. Just a post-it note. Very faded and worn, so I must have written it down quite a while ago.
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Slice 5 cups of apples into greased 7 x 11 pan. You may peel or not. (around here, all the leftover parts of the apples go into a bowl for the farm animals. I hand feed Daisy the donkey, and scatter the rest for the sheep and goat.)
Melt 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
In a bowl, mix:
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
Stir in melted butter, and sprinkle mixture over apples.
Bake around 30 minutes, until top is browned and apples are soft.
Crunchy, strong apple taste, delicious.
Top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
