Start by slicing some apples and tossing them with a bit of lemon juice to prevent them from browning. In a separate bowl, mix together some oats, brown sugar, flour, and a pinch of cinnamon. Add in some softened butter and mix until the mixture becomes crumbly. Turn the edges up on a sheet of foil to make a shallow dish and grease the inside, then place the sliced apples in your foil dish, and sprinkle the oat mixture on top. Cover the dish with more foil and place it on the campfire grill for about 20-25 minutes, or until the apples are tender and bubbling. Serve it warm with a splash of cream and watch as everyone's faces light up with delight.
