Preparation

In large bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, rolled oats, flour and cinnamon. Remove 1 cup and set aside.

Stir apples and lemon juice into remaining brown sugar mixture; pack tightly into 8-inch (2 L) square baking dish. Set aside.

Cinnamon Buns: In separate bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until crumbly. Drizzle with buttermilk, tossing with fork to make shaggy dough.

Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 5 or 6 times until dough comes together. Roll or gently press into 8-inch (20 cm) square. Sprinkle with reserved brown sugar mixture, pressing to adhere.

Roll up dough into cylinder. Cut crosswise into 9 pieces. Arrange pieces, cut side down, over filling.

Cinnamon Sugar Topping: Stir sugar with cinnamon. Brush bun tops with butter; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until top is puffed and golden and filling is bubbly, covering with foil if browning too quickly, 50 to 55 minutes. Serve warm.
