  • 4 cups peeled, cored and sliced apples
  • ½ cup of golden raisins, dried currants, or fresh cranberries (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon potato flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ½ cup crushed almonds
  • ½ cup crushed pecans
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a medium bowl, add potato flour, nuts, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Stir until the mixture is crumbly. Add more butter as needed.

Press half of the nut and sugar mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Add a layer of sliced apples.

In a medium saucepan, add white sugar, cornstarch, water and vanilla.

Cook while stirring for about 10 minutes, until it is clear and thick.

Pour this mixture over the apples in the baking dish. Cover apples with remaining crumble mixture.

Place in a hot oven, and bake for about 45 minutes.

When it is bubbly and golden, remove, cool and serve with vanilla ice cream, or frozen yogurt.
