Apple Crisp

I just enjoyed a big fat apple while adding this recipe into the newsletter. I would have enjoyed it even more if it had been a dish of this instead. 



6-8 apples
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
2 teaspoons lemon juice

For Topping:

1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cups chopped nuts 

Peel, core and slice apples. Add sugar, cinnamon, cloves and lemon juice. Mix well and turn into buttered baking dish. Crumble together sugar, flour, salt and butter.
