User Rating:  / 1


6 to 8 cooking apples

1 cup flour

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

3/4 cup butter

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 peel of one lemon

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Peel, quarter and core cooking apples. Cut apple quarters into thin slices and place in a bowl.

Blend nutmeg and cinnamon then sprinkle over apples. Sprinkle with lemon rind. Add lemon juice and toss to blend.

Arrange slices in a large baking dish.

Make a crumbly mixture of sugar, flour and butter in a mixing bowl using a fork to just mix. Mixture should be crumbly, not smooth.

Put the crumb mixture over apples, smoothing it over.

Place the dish in the oven. If dish is very full, put a pan under the dish to catch spills.

Bake at 350° for 60 minutes, until browned and apples are tender.
