Is there anything better than the smell of apples baking on a cool fall day? Yum! This is a simple Southern classic that will warm you right up and tastes great as a side dish or as dessert with vanilla ice cream. Be sure to hang on to this one for Thanksgiving. (I have a delicious Crock Pot apple recipe too if slow cooking is what you need).
2 lbs. apples, peeled, cored and sliced (I like to use Gala or Granny Smith or a combo of the two)
2/3 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. corn starch
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place apple slices in a 2 quart rectangular casserole dish.
In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cornstarch. Pour over the apple slices and toss until all apples are covered. Dot with butter.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for 20 minutes (or until apples reach desired tenderness).
