Preparation time:
Cooking time: 1 hour

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners


• 2/3 c. sugar
• ½ tsp. cinnamon
• ¼ tsp. nutmeg
• 8 lg. tart apples, cored and thinly sliced (may or may not peel)
• 2 T. water
• 2 T. lemon juice

COOK’S TIP: Add a little flour, so the filling isn’t too runny

Filling: Preheat oven to 350°. In large bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add apples; sprinkle on water and lemon juice. Toss until evenly coated. Spoon into a 9-inch, deep dish pie pan (without pastry). Dot with butter.

Crumb topping: Cream sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add flour and stir until smooth. Sprinkle over apples. Bake 50-60 minutes. Serve warm. Makes 8 servings, about 375 calories each. May use cherries, peaches or apricots in place of apples.
