Instructions

  1. 1Heat a grill to medium high (about 375ºF). Place all filling ingredients in a large nonreactive bowl and toss to coat apples. Turn mixture into an 8-by-8-inch disposable baking pan; set aside.
  2. 2In a medium bowl, mix together all topping ingredients except butter until evenly combined. Blend in butter pieces with your fingertips until small clumps form and the butter is well incorporated, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle topping evenly over apple filling.
  3. 3Grill, covered, until streusel is browned and apples are fork tender, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Let cool on a rack at least 5 minutes before serving.
