How to make it

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • One at a time, peel apples and cut into 1/4 inch slices. After slicing each apple, place slices in a large bowl and LIGHTLY sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown while you prepare the remaining apples. Occasionally stir with a rubber spatula so more of the slices are coated with the lemon juice without having to add too much. You want to use as little lemon juice as possible.
  • Place apple slices in an ungreased 2-quart, shallow, glass baking dish. Arrange slices by hand, if necessary, to make sure all of the apples fit nicely. It will be a tight squeeze, but they will cook down while baking.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in nuts, if using. Sprinkle topping evenly over apples. Bake 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender or of desired doneness. Cool slightly and serve warm or cold. Top with vanilla ice cream, if desired, and drizzle with caramel sauce. Store leftovers LOOSELY covered in the refrigeration. If you cover them too tightly, the moisture in the apples will make the topping soft and mushy.
  • Note: Recipe is easily halved to make a smaller pan.

    Very tasty and easy recipe to make. I did double the topping for personal preferences. This is a good recipe and worth saving. Added my photos.

    I just tried this recipe, and omg was it good! The only thing I did differently was I added some allspice. I'm currently having to fight to keep from eating the entire thing by myself!!
