  • For the apple portion:
  • 6 to 8 apples I like to mix two kinds, peeled, cored and cut into thin slices
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • For the topping:
  • cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • Optional: ½ to 1 cups of rolled oats
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. For the apple portion:
  3. Slice apples thinly and put them in a medium sized bowl.
  4. Sprinkle the sugar, corn starch, cinnamon and nutmeg over apples in the bowl. Mix until well combined.
  5. Transfer to a 9 x 13 pan that you've sprayed with non stick spray.
  6. For the topping:
  7. Mix the flour, sugars, and butter in a bowl. Cut the butter into it with a pastry cutter or fork. It should look sort of like wet sand.
  8. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix again.
  9. Toss the topping over the apple mixture.
  10. Pop the dish in the oven and bake for about 35 to 45 minutes depending on your apple type and oven. I start checking at 35 but most times it's done in about 40.
Recipe Notes

My Mom never used oats in hers that I can remember. My thought is one of us kids didn't like it so she never used it. Without it the topping tastes sort of like candy. it's spectacular.

I promise better photos when I get a chance to remake this.
