YIELD: Makes 6-8 servings

INGREDIENTS 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

DIRECTIONS 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.

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