Ingredients:

Thinly sliced apples, pared and sliced
To fit an 9 x 9 square baking dish 
⅓ cup flour
¾ teaspoon nutmeg
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
Pastry for 9-inch one crust pie

Instructions:

  • Sift together sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt.
  • Mix dry ingredients with apples. Put apple mixture into ungreased pan.  Dot the top of the apple mixture with butter.
  • Preheat oven to 410° F.
  • Prepare pastry and roll into 10-inch square. (I used Pillsbury pie crust -  but usually make my own).  Place crust over the fruit mixture in the pan.
  • Cut slits near the center.
  • Fold edges under just inside edge of pan (I brushed the top of the crust with egg white).
  • Bake 50 minutes or until juice begins to bubble through slits 

Serve ― warm and with ice cream.
