  • Fill pie plate with apples, creating a slight mound.

  • Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or knife and fork until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over apples.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until apples are tender and bubbling and top is lightly golden brown, 45 to 55 minutes. Let cool before slicing, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute margarine for the butter if desired.

You may substitute apples with drained canned peaches or apricots; reduce the baking time to 35 to 45 minutes.
