5 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2 inch slices

1/2 cup granulated sugar

Toss apple slices with cinnamon and nutmeg. Turn into casserole and sprinkle with water. Combine flour, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Cut butter into it until the crumbs are the size of peas. Crumble over apples. Bake at 400 degrees for 40-45 minutes until golden brown. Serve with ice cream or heavy whipped cream if desired.
