1 cup butter, chopped into small pieces
2 cups raw brown sugar
2 tablespoons pumpkin spice
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons lemon zest
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a medium size mixing bowl, add one cup of sugar, apples, pumpkin spice, and lemon juice. Stir to combine. Set aside.
Add flour, butter, one cup of sugar, one tablespoon of pumpkin spice, and lemon zest in a food processor and pulse until it resembles crumbs.
Pour half the crumbs into a 9" prepared springform cake pan, spreading evenly to coat the bottom. Press crumbs down. Add apples and spread evenly. Add the rest of the crumbs on top making sure to cover all the apples (refer to picture).
