Baked Apples With Oatmeal Streusel Topping

We (well, not actually me, but I was in the room reading while they) watched our first football game last night, which has become an indicator that the autumnal season is fast approaching.I love autumn for the beauty of the leaves, sweaters and blue jeans, and all things apple, pumpkin, cinnamon, and spice.

I found this recipe on Pinterest over the summer and tried it the other day. It’s easy, and it’s delicious.

1. Slice 3-4 apples in half with a large knife, then scoop out the seeds and stem parts with a melon baller.

2. Mix together:
a little over half stick/quarter cup melted butter or margarine or fat of your choice
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of ground ginger
pinch of salt

3. Fill and top apple halves with the mixture.

4. Bake at 350 F/180 C until tops are golden brown and apples swell, about 30 minutes.
