- 2 pounds tart green apples, peeled and sliced
- thinly(about 5 to 51/2 cups sliced)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup butter
Peel the apples and slice them thinly. Put them in a rather shallow 1-quart casserole and sprinkle them with the water. Put them aside while you prepare the crust.
Sift together the dry ingredients and cut in the butter until all is well combined. Sprinkle this mixture thickly and evenly over the apples. Don’t mix the two together.
Cover the casserole and bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour, then uncover and bake another 1/2 hour. The crust will be crisp on top, and will have partly seeped down through the apples,
flavoring them and binding them slightly together.
Serve hot or cold.
