Our spice-infused apple streusel is the perfect tummy-warmer on the coldest of winter days or as temperatures drop during the fall. It takes about an hour to make, but most of that time is for the streusel to bake in the oven, which lasts about 45 minutes. You only need a few pantry ingredients to make it, and it's great to put together after a day spent at the apple orchard. The apples are flavored with cinnamon, brown sugar, and lemon juice, then are topped with a mixture of flour, oats, and butter. You'll love how quick and easy this impressive-looking dessert is, and it will soon become a staple in your household.
