Place softened butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and sea salt in a medium sized bowl. Use your hands, a fork or a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles a coarse meal with buttery chunks.
Add oats and stir until evenly combined, set aside.
Make the filling:
Place the peeled and cored apples in a microwave safe dish and heat for 6 minutes, until apples are slightly soft.
While apples are in the microwave, in a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, granulated sugar, flour cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
When apples are finished cooking in the microwave, put them in a colander to drain excess water. Let them cool and drain in the colander for at least 10 minutes.
Transfer cooled & drained apples to a bowl, add lemon juice, then dry ingredient mixture and stir until mixture is homogenous (uniform throughout).
Putting it together.

Notes on how to make an apple crisp:
Precook the apples: Don't forget to precook the apples and drain them in a colander. This will prevent a wet and mush apple crisp.
Choose a baking dish: Add the apple filling to a prepared baking dish. I usually use a 9x9" baking dish, but you can use an 8x8" dish, or as pictured here, a 10 x7" dish. You can also use a round casserole dish. The important thing is that whatever dish you choose has a capacity of at least 2 to 2.5 quarts.
