  1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter eight miniature 5-6 inch cast-iron skillets.
  2.  Toss the apples and lemon juice together in a large bowl.  Divide the mixture evenly between the prepared cast-iron skillets.
  3.  Combine the brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a bowl.  Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two forks until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle the topping over the apples.

Top with the vanilla ice cream and serve.
