  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

FILLING:

  • INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

Instructions
 

CRUST AND TOPPING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Lightly butter an 8-inch square baking pan and set aside.
  • Put the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt into a food processor and pulse to mix.
  • Scatter the butter over the dry mixture and pulse until the mixture resembles a coarse meal and holds together when pressed between your fingers.
  • Press a little more than half of the mixture into the prepared pan, banking it about ½ inch up the sides.
  • Refrigerate for 10 minutes, along with the remaining crust/topping mixture. Remove the crust from the fridge and bake on the center oven rack for 10 minutes. Cool completely on a rack.

FILLING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Peel and core the apples.
  • Slice, then cut into small and medium chunks.
  • Melt the butter in a medium skillet. Stir in the apples and sauté over moderate heat for 2 minutes, or until soft.
  • Stir in the brown sugar, raisins, and lemon juice and heat for 1 minute.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the flour.
  • Transfer the apples to a plate and cool.
  • Spread the cooled filling over the crust.
  • Sprinkle the reserved crumble topping over the apples and press it down gently with your fingertips.
  • Bake for 40 minutes.
  • Serve warm, for a pie-like dessert. Otherwise, cool the bars completely in the pan on a rack.
  • Refrigerate the bars for 30 minutes before slicing.
