This is a really close cousin to Dutch apple pie, actually maybe more like a crisp, and there’s no crust to roll out! French apple dessert has a buttery crust, and is packed with apples, cinnamon and nutmeg.
It’s covered with a hard-to-resist crumbly streusel topping of brown sugar and pecans, that is crisp and delicious and sweet.
My "go-to" apple for desserts is Honeycrisp, use your favorite apple for baking this dessert. I make it with Splenda instead of granulated sugar, you would never know the difference!
I used a 9 x 13-inch Pyrex baking dish, making it much easier to cut into squares instead of making in a pie plate and cutting into wedges. For smaller squares, cut into 15 servings, it’s on the rich side.
You are going to love a helping of this with whipped cream or ice cream, or just on its own!
We've had lots of celebrating here lately: our 51st anniversary, my birthday and now Mother's Day shortly...
This is a perfect treat for Mom and everyone on Mother's Day!
