  • 3 whole Granny Smith Apples peeled & cubed
  • 3 whole Honey Crisp Apples peeled & cubed
  • 1 cup Butterscotch Chips
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • tsp salt or a pinch
  • ¾ cups flour
  • ½ cups brown sugar
  • ¾ cups Oats
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter cold and cut into cubed


  • Heat oven to 400°
    Peel apples and place in cold water with lemon juice.
    Dice apples into cubed and then place into stainless pot with butter and begin cooking on medium.
    Place everything else EXCEPT BUTTERSCOTCH CHIPS in the pot and cook together for 12 minutes over medium heat until apples are fork-tender but not mushy, stirring constantly.
    Take off the heat and fold in butterscotch chips. Then butter a rectangular pan and place apple mixture inside.
    For the crumble topping you"ll want to mix together the flour, half cup of brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon.
    Then add butter using a pastry cutter, fork, or your hands and blend in until it forms into crumbled pieces.
    Place crumbled pieces evenly overtop your apple mixture and bake in the oven at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and crispy.


You can use any of the recomended apple variations. It's usually good to ad a mixture of tart and sweet baking apples. Also since this recipe sautes the apple first, it is baked at a higher tempurature and for less time to get a nice crispy crust!
