Apple Delight

Apple Delight
Sunday, September 21st, 2014
This is a traditional American recipe from E. P. Dutton’s, American Food. We served it

to Mrs. S. and the Grandfather during their visit to Newport in the 1970’s and they both raved about it.

Mrs. S. said it was the best desert she had ever had and proceeded to have seconds. And she was not a

dessert person.


6-8 apples, peeled, cored, and cut into pieces.
½ cup of sugar
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
Nutmeg to taste
¾ cup of flour
¾ cup of sugar
4 to 6 tablespoons of butter

Make a mixture of ½ cup of sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Put the cut up apples in a bowl and sprinkle with the sugar mixture and toss.
Spread apples in a buttered baking dish.
Meanwhile, put ¾ cup of flour and ¾ cup of sugar in a food processor with metal blade.
Add the six tablespoons of very cold butter cut up into small pieces and pulse in the food processor until the butter is about half the size small pebbles.
Spoon this topping over the apples.
Bake in a preheated 375° oven for about 45 minutes until the top is browned and bubbling.
Serve with vanilla ice cream
