Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Filling:
  1. Peel and core the apples, slice them, and then cut the slices into bite size chunks. Place the apples in a bowl.
  2. Juice and zest the lemon, and then divide each in half. You'll use half for the filling, and set aside the other half for the topping.
  3. Add half the juice and zest to the apples.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients for the topping and stir so the fruit is thoroughly coated and the lemon zest is evenly distributed.
  5. Transfer the filing to a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish, or a similarly sized glass baking dish.
Topping:
  1. Add the dry ingredients to a large bowl, along with the remaining half of the lemon zest and juice. Stir together loosely to mix.
  2. Cut in the butter with knives, or work it with your fingers until the mixture is moist and the crumbs are about pea-sized.
  3. Pour the topping over the fruit mixture, and then press it down gently to form a mostly even layer over the filling.
  4. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until the filling is bubbling and the topping is golden brown.
