Slice 4 cups of apples.  I recommend having 8 apples around.  Depending on their size and how many times you eat a slice it may take that many to get 4 cups.

Place in bottom of pie plate.  Nothing fancy.

In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  It’s easier if you A) have butter at room temperature, B) cut it into cubes first and c) have one of these handy dandy pastry blenders.

Scatter mixture over the apples.  Nothing pretty about that but wait till you taste it.

Bake for 45 minutes. It’ll be nice and golden brown.

Scoop some vanilla ice cream in a bowl.  You can’t have apple anything without vanilla ice cream

Apple Betty (15)

I like the really good vanilla with the black specks.  They are from the vanilla bean.
