  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¾ cups (1 ½ sticks) room temperature unsalted butter cut into one tablespoon chuncks
  • 3 large honeycrisp apples peeled, cored, sliced ¼ inch thick (about 3 ½ cups)
  • 2 large granny smith apples peeled, cored, sliced ¼ inch thick (about 3 cups)
  • caramel topping for serving
  • vanilla ice cream for serving


  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Whisk together flour, brown sugar, oats, ground cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Add in room temperature butter (save the wrappers for later). Using clean hands, gently press the butter into the dry ingredients until all the butter has been worked into pea-sized clumps or smaller.
  • Use the leftover butter wrappers to grease a 12 inch cast iron skillet.
  • Layer the apples on the bottom of the skillet, alternating between the honeycrisp and granny smith. Evenly sprinkle the oat and sugar topping over the apples.
  • Bake for 30 - 35 minutes until the top has slightly browned and the apples are fork-tender. Serve with a heavy drizzle of caramel topping and vanilla ice cream.


To reheat, heat oven to 350°F. Place the skillet covered with foil into the oven and cook for 30-40 minutes until warmed.
