I was fortunate enough to have a dear friend share this recipe with me more than 50 years ago. The sweet-smelling combination of apples, cinnamon, sugar and nutmeg has been a welcome scent in my house ever since. —Cleo Lightfoot, Southlake, Texas

"This recipe or a version of it, has been in our family for years. Only kind I like. An easier step to cutting the butter in is to just melt it and pour over the top of the flour mix after it is spread over the apples, making sure to get the edges. Don't even have to pre-stir the egg, just drop in flour mixture and stir. Yum! Have never seen this recipe posted anywhere before. Nice to see it out there."

"This is a very nice go to quick recipe. I did use more apples and I precooked them for a few minutes before completing the recipe. I cut back on the butter and I made just 1/2 of the recipe. Perfect for 2 *
