This recipe is from a vintage apple recipes book I picked up this summer. The kids are sick with beginning of the school year colds, so I've been behind this week. Enjoy the recipe:
2 cups apples, sliced
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour, sifted
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup chopped nuts
1 cup whipped cream
Arrange half of apples evenly on the bottom of a greased baking dish. Sprinkle over them half of the brown sugar. Add another layer of apples. Combine rest of sugar, the flour, and butter and spread evenly over top of apples. Press down edges of flour mixture and cut gashes in top to allow steam to escape. Bake in 350 F oven for one hour. Serve warm with whipped cream & chopped nuts.
Put an apple in your bag of potatoes to keep them from sprouting.
Add lemon juice to an apple recipe if the apples you're using lack tartness or flavor.
Eating a raw apple after a meal will cleanse the mouth of 95% of bacteria that cause tooth decay.

I read that the best apple pies are the ones that combine 3-4 different types of apples. Something to try.
