  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease the bottom of a 2.5-3 quart baking dish with butter.

  • Assembly time! Spread half the apples on the bottom of your baking dish. Layer with half of the brown sugar mixture and half of the bread crumbs. Repeat, using up the remaining ingredients.
