1 - stick butter, divided

1 cup - oats

1/4 cup - brown sugar

1 cup - chopped pecans

2 T - flour

1/2 cup - sugar

1/4 cup - honey

1 tsp. - kosher salt, divided

zest and juice of 1 small orange

4 - crisp, tart apples (such as Granny Smith), cored and cut into 1/2" slice

1 tsp. - ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. - ground nutmeg

**additional honey for drizzling, a scoop of vanilla ice cream works too! **If you are looking for some other spice additions consider some all spice or ground ginger...


Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Cut up 1/2 of the butter into small cubes. In a medium bowl, mix the butter with the oats, brown sugar, pecans and flour until it is crumbly, but starting to clump together. Set aside.

Melt 1/2 of the butter over medium heat, add the sugar, honey, salt, orange juice and zest, cook for 15 minutes until the sauce starts to turn light brown, syrupy and reduced by 1/2.

Add the apples, cinnamon and nutmeg. Toss to coat and continue cooking for another 6-8 minutes.

Turn off the heat and add the crumbled, pecan mixture to the top of the apples. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the topping begins to brown and the apples start to bubble. Serve warm with additional honey drizzled on top.


Add 1/2 cup of fresh or dried cranberries for a seasonal twist to this dish.
