Ingredients

4
medium cooking apples (such as Rome Beauty, Granny Smith or Greening)
1/4
cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4
cup water
1
cup all-purpose flour
2/3
cup granulated sugar
1/2
cup (1 stick) margarine or butter, soft enough to spread
Ice cream, if you like

  • 1 Heat the oven to 375º. Cut each of the apples into 4 sections on the cutting board, using the knife. Cut out the apple core and seeds. Peel apple sections with the knife.
  • 2 Cut apple sections into slices (you should have about 4 cups). Put apple slices in the pan.
  • 3 Put the brown sugar and cinnamon in the small bowl. Stir with the spoon until mixed. Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples. Pour the water over apples.
  • 4 Put the flour, granulated sugar and margarine in the medium bowl. Mix with your hands until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle crumbly mixture over apples.
  • 5 Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until apples are soft and topping is golden brown. Use the pot holders to take pan out of oven. Cool for 10 minutes on the wire cooling rack.
  • 6 Serve with ice cream or the whipped cream, if you like.

Expert Tips

Apples have real peel appeal. You don't have to peel the apples - if you leave the peel on, just make sure you take out the core and seeds.
