No-Stick Cooking Spray
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
2 large Golden Delicious apples
juice of one-half lemon
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Heat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 9-inch pie pan lightly with no-stick cooking spray. Combine butter and brown sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until well blended. Add flour and oats; add pecans if desired; blend well. Shape the dough into a ball. Press the dough with floured hands evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pie pan.
Peel and slice apples to make about 3 cups; toss with the juice of half a lemon. Arrange apple slices evenly in the crust in a circular pattern, starting from the outside edge and working toward the center. Fill in any spaces until all apple slices are used. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl; mix well. Sprinkle evenly over apples.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the crust is light golden brown and the apples are tender. Cool on a wire rack for at least 45 minutes before serving.
