DIRECTIONS

  • Cut cold butter into small cubes. Place in freezer to chill further.
  • PREPARE APPLES.
  • Peel apples.
  • Cut an apple into quarters. Cut out core. Cut each apple slice one more time so that there are 8 slices.
  • Cube the apple by cutting each slice the "short" way 2 or 3 times. Apple chunks should be no smaller than 1 inch (or they will get too mushy when cooking).
  • Cube the remaining apples.
  • Put apples into an 8 1/2 x 12 inch au gratin casserole dish, or an equivalent baking dish (it's pretty forgiving).
  • Pour water over apples.
  • PREPARE TOPPING:.
  • In the food processor put the sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and flour. Pulse until combined.
  • Remove butter from freezer and put into food processor.
  • Pulse to blend. Topping should be smaller than peas but not as fine as cornmeal.
  • Add 3/4 cups chopped pecans pulse too mix.
  • Sprinkle topping over apples evenly.
  • Cover dish with foil.
  • Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
  • Uncover.
  • Bake for 30 more minutes.
  • Cool before serving.
