This is one of my favorite fall desserts. It was my Grandmother Avery’s recipe, who always had plenty of fresh apples from her trees in Macon. It is so easy and delicious and can be served at Sunday lunch or in a pretty compote with vanilla ice cream at a dinner party. Please make it often and enjoy!
6 Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick margarine, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For filling, in a bowl, sprinkle apples with lemon juice. In a separate bowl, combine ½ cup sugar and cinnamon. Stir into apples until coated. Place apples in a 6 x 9-inch greased baking dish. For topping, in a bowl, mix together margarine, flour, and 1 cup sugar. Crumble over apples. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
Yield: 10-12 servings
