For my tea today, I am using the beautiful "Poppy" teacup that my dear friend Bernideen from Bernideen's Tea Time Blog sent me to share her sympathy with me after my hubby passed away. She also sent a delightful Fruit Spiced Tea from her shop, Bernideen's, in Colorado. Thank you for my lovely, thoughtful gifts! I think of you whenever I sip my tea from this pretty cup.
Isn't this teacup so pretty? I love that there's a poppy peeking on the inside, too. Bernideen knows me so well to send my favorite color!
Oh how I love this dessert! I believe I love it more than apple pie. The topping is wonderful and has a wonderful texture. I hope you try it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
4 large apples, peeled (I used my apple/peeler/corer/slicer)
1 t. cinnamon
some freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 cup flour
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
6 T. melted butter
Lightly butter inside of 9-inch pie plate. Place sliced apples in dish. Sprinkle cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar over apples. Pour the water evenly over this.
For Topping: Mix flour and brown sugar together and add the melted butter. Stir together and set aside for 5 minutes, then break apart with fingertips. Sprinkle on top of the apples.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, checking for the tenderness of the apples and for the topping to be golden brown.
