Apple Crumble by Katharina
I (Katharina) found this recipe on

2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
Non-stick vegetable oil spray
4 pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled, halved, each half cut into 6 slices
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

Mix oats, 1 cup sugar, and flour in bow. Add butter; rub in with fingertips until topping comes together in moist clumps.
Preheat oven to 375F. Spray 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish with nonstick spray. Mix apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, and 1/2 cup brown sugar in bowl. Transfer to dish. Sprinkle topping over.
Bake crumble until apples are tender and topping brown and crisp, about 55 minutes. Cool slightly. Serve warm.
