  • 6 apples peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1/3 c. lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar divided
  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon divided
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  1. Preheat oven to 375°.

  2. Prepare apples and place slices in a large bowl. Pour lemon juice over apple slices. Add ½ c. sugar to apples. Sprinkle cinnamon over slices. Mix together and let the fruit rest on the counter for about an hour.

  3. Measure remaining sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a second bowl. Cut butter into small chunks and add to the bowl of dry ingredients.

  4. Using a pastry blender, work the butter into the dry ingredients until a coarse mixture is achieved. The flour and sugar will be incorporated into the butter. The mixture will be crumbly.

  5. Pour the apples and accumulated juices into a casserole dish.  Top with the butter/sugar/flour mixture.

  6. Bake for about 45 minutes, until fruit is soft and bubbly, and crumbs are golden brown.

  7. Serve warm, with vanilla ice cream if desired.
