Spray 9-inch square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Pour apple mixture into baking dish and spread evenly. Dice butter into smaller cubes, using a sharp knife. In a medium bowl, combine remaining brown sugar and flour, oats and butter. Mix with hands until crumbly. Spread oat and flour mixture over apple mixture. Bake uncovered on middle rack of oven for 40 minutes or until top is lightly browned or bubbly. Let crisp sit for 15 to 20 minutes before serving. Serves 10.
