5 cups sliced, peeled apples
2 to 4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
Place apples in an 8x1 1/2 inch round baking dish. Stir in sugar.
For topping, in a mixing bowl combine oats, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Cut in butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping over apples.
Bake in a 350* oven for 30-35 minutes or till fruit is tender and topping is golden. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.

For best flavor, use two or three varieties of apples. (I used gala and granny smith.) This makes the dessert have a much fuller flavor.
