It's finally getting cooler - not colder.  Fall is here!  What better way to make some dessert made of apples!  It's apple picking time.  But last weekend, I found some beautiful organic crisp Granny Smith apples.  Here's a very easy quick Fall dessert.

6 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 TB butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup sifted flour
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
dash of salt
1 stick of butter cut up in 8

Melt the 2 TB of butter and brush the pie plate well.  Slice the apples and combine well with the orange juice.  Pour into buttered pie plate or oven proof dish.

Using either a pastry cutter or a mixer, combine the sugar, flour, nutmeg, salt, cinnamon and the 8 slices of butter.
Combine the dry ingredients with the butter until they look mealy like the photo

Pour the sliced apples in the buttered pie plate or dish and top it with the mealy mixture above.

You are now ready to bake it in a preheated 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for 45 minutes.

I use a pie juice guard to place my pie on to catch the juice in case it starts overflowing.

As easy as ABC!  I serve this with homemade whipped cream on top.
1 Cup whipping cream
1/4 c powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine in small bowl and beat till cream becomes stiff - whipped!
