1 cup flour
½ cup cold butter
½ cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. caramel sauce (and additional for serving)
vanilla ice cream for topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In medim bowl, mix oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon and butter cut into small pieces. Using a pastry blender or fork, crumble the butter into the dry mixture.
On stovetop, heat cast iron skillet until hot. Add 1 Tbsp. butter and allow it to melt. Pour in apples and stir gently, then add oatmeal misture and stir with a wooden spoon or spatula to mix together. Drizzle 2 Tbsp. caramel sauce over the top. Remove from stove. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until apples are tender and oatmeal is golden.
Top with ice cream and more caramel sauce and serve.
For a fun presentation. Bring the entire skillet to the table with several spoons and allow your guests to dive in!
