DIRECTIONS

  • For filling:.
  • 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.
  • For topping:.
  • In a Cuisinart-type food processor, blend together 1 cup brown sugar, flour and pecans.
  • When the mixture gets almost smooth, add in chucks of the butter and pulse until the mixture becomes the consistency of wet sand.
  • Do not over mix or the topping will become gluey.
  • In a cast iron skillet (any size will work!).
  • 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.
  • Top with a thick layer of the crumbled topping and bake at 300 degrees for approximately 60 minutes.
  • Keep checking to be sure that the top does not over brown.
  • If the top gets too brown, lower the temperature to 275 and keep an eye on the oven.
  • When the topping is golden brown and the apples are lightly bubbling, the dessert is ready.
  • Serve in the pan family style, or scoop out and top with cinnamon ice cream.
