  4. Combine remaining 3 tablespoons sugar, remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, oats, flour, and salt. Carefully fan open apple halves. Spoon oat mixture evenly over apples. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes. Turn broiler to high (leave pan in oven); broil 2 minutes. Serve with ice cream.
