ABOUT THE RECIPE
By Mark Bittman
6 cups peeled, cored, sliced apples or ripe pears, 2 to 3 pounds
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, or more to taste
1/2 cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons
5 tablespoons butter, plus more for greasing the pan
3/4 cup oats
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans.
A NOTE ON MEASUREMENTS
We work with chefs from all around the world, which is why we include both imperial (cups/ounces) and metric (grams) measurements. To achieve best results, we highly recommend that you utilize a kitchen scale and follow the metric measurements when possible.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Toss fruit with half the cinnamon and 2 tablespoons sugar, and spread it in a lightly buttered 8-inch square or 9-inch round baking pan.
Combine remaining cinnamon and sugar in container of a food processor with butter, oats and nuts; pulse a few times, just until ingredients are combined. (Do not purée.) To mix ingredients by hand, soften butter slightly, toss together dry ingredients and work butter in with fingertips, a pastry blender or a fork.
Spread topping over apples, and bake about 40 minutes, until topping is browned and apples are tender. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.
