  1. For filling:.
  2. Peel the apples, slice and dust with both sugars (1/2 cup brown sugar & 1/2 cup white sugar), lime juice and cinnamon and allow to site in large mixing bowl for 10 minutes to marinate.
  3. For topping:.
  4. In a Cuisinart-type food processor, blend together 1 cup brown sugar, flour and pecans.
  5. When the mixture gets almost smooth, add in chucks of the butter and pulse until the mixture becomes the consistency of wet sand.
  6. Do not over mix or the topping will become gluey.

  8. Preheat the pan to 300 degrees in a convention oven. Grease the pan with just a touch of butter or non-stick cooking spray. Then add in a heavy helping of the apple mixture.
  9. Top with a thick layer of the crumbled topping and bake at 300 degrees for approximately 60 minutes.

  11. If the top gets too brown, lower the temperature to 275 and keep an eye on the oven.
  12. When the topping is golden brown and the apples are lightly bubbling, the dessert is ready.
  13. Serve in the pan family style, or scoop out and top with cinnamon ice cream.
