Start by preheating your oven to 350°F and buttering the bottom and sides of a 10” cast iron skillet. Then, whisk the flour, oats, and brown sugar in a medium bowl to combine. Add in the melted Cabot Salted Butter, using a spoon or spatula to work it into the mixture until crumbly. Add the shredded Cabot New York Extra Sharp (or Cabot Seriously Sharp) cheese and mix in to combine. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the apple slices and lemon. Add the brown sugar, flour, and nutmeg, and toss to coat the apples. Pour the mixture into your prepared skillet and add the topping to cover the apples.
Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes, until the apples are tender and the topping is golden brown. Serve straight out of the oven or, even better, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum!
