This is my family's favorite version of this old and popular recipe. I have doubled it quite successfully for large gatherings.

- 1⁄8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons butter

My family really loved this one, especially DH who wanted the whole thing for himself!
this was really delicious. It's a nice change from apple crisp. It's easy to put together, and the ingredients are things normally on hand. Thanks!
