Pears would also be nice in this homey dessert. Prepare the crumble topping (including cutting in the butter), and freeze up to two months. Sprinkle it--still frozen--over the apple mixture just before you put it in the oven.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°.

  • To prepare topping, lightly spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine flour and the next 5 ingredients (through nutmeg), stirring with a whisk. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle butter mixture evenly over apple mixture.
