2. Stir in cream, bourbon, and salt.  Continue to cook over medium heat.

3. Mixture will bubble up and expand. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.  Once the mixture has tripled in size remove from heat and allow to cool slightly in the pan.

4. Wash and peel enough apples to fill the pie pan.  Slice them into bite sized pieces.

5. Toss the sliced apples with 1/2 cup of the warm butterscotch sauce and set aside.

1. Chop butter into small chunks.  In a mixing bowl combine flour, old fashioned oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine.  Crumble chopped butter into the rest of the ingredients, working it until the butter is in small pea sized chunks.
