We participated in a ministry for young wives in the Killeen / Fort Hood area called Apples of Gold, based on the book by Betty Huizenga. This recipe was a frequent favorite at our meetings.

⅓ cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup flour
¼ tsp. nutmeg
¼ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 cups chopped apples
½ cup chopped pecans

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter with sugar and egg. Mix flour and next five ingredients in a separate bowl, then add slowly to butter mixture.  Fold in chopped apples and pecans.  Pour into greased and floured 9”x9” pan or 9” pie plate. Cook 25 minutes or until lightly browned on top.  Serve with whipped cream, Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream.
