Apples in syrup snuggled between oaty cinnamon-crumble layers and baked.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 4 cups peeled, cored and sliced apples
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Stir until crumbly. Press half the oat mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover with sliced apples.
In a medium saucepan, combine white sugar, cornstarch, water and vanilla. Cook, stirring, until thick and clear, 10 minutes. Pour over apples. Cover apples with remaining crumble mixture.
