Peel 4 large apples and chop them into small cubes.
Fry the apple until soft in 60 grams butter, 2 Tbs brown sugar, 1 Tsp cinnamon and a dash of rum to taste. Place in an uncooked pastry shell. (I use puff pastry.)
Topping – Cream 125g butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Add one egg and mix well. Stir in 1/3 cup ground nuts (almonds or hazelnuts are nice) Pour the topping over the top of the apple and top with flaked almonds or hazelnuts. Bake in a moderate oven approx 30 minutes. Serve with cream, ice cream or custard. (Or all three if the fresh country air has made you really hungry!!)
