Ingredients
For the filling
For the topping
  • 1/2cup buttercold and cubed (use palm shortening for dairy free)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×9 inch baking dish with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the prepared apples, orange zest, lemon zest, lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cornstarch. Mix well and pour into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the caramel pieces over the top, evenly distributing them.
  3. To make the topping, add the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, and oats to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix to combine.
  4. Add the cubed butter (or shortening) and mix on low to incorporate. When the dough starts to come together, crumble it over the top of the apples.
  5. Place the baking dish over a rimmed baking sheet (in case the apples bubble over) and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until the topping is browned/crisp and the apples are bubbling.
  6. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.
Recipe Notes

Use new caramels if you can. Old caramels have a tendency to get hard.
