Scalloped Apples, made with an Apple,Corer,Slicer,Peeler, " Thingamajiggy"

This is a Thanksgiving Favorite in our Family!
It's great any time of the year.

I wanted to recreate the flavor of Apples that we used to get at Luby's Cafeteria when I was a kid. I loved them and they always had them around Thanksgiving.  I created this microwaved version. They are exactly as I remembered them.
This mixture with Pecans and Raisins makes a great pie filling. Mix as directed and bake in a pie shell.

10 C peeled, cored and sliced tart apples (about 8 med. apples), of course it depends on the size of the apples.
This is the preparation stage of the apples.

After they're coated with the sugar and spices they are dotted with butter.
They are then microwaved with a cover slightly ajar.

This is the final product.

1/3 C Sugar
2 TBS Cornstarch
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground Nutmeg
2 TBS Butter
Raisins, Pecans or Dried Cranberries (optional)

Place Apples in a 2 1/2 Quart Microwavable Baking dish with a cover
Combine Sugar, Cornstarch,Cinnamon and Nutmeg in a small bowl and whisk well.
Sprinkle over the Apples and toss to coat well
Add Raisins and Pecans if desired
Dot with pieces of Butter
Cover and microwave for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.

This is my Apple, Corer, Slicer, Peeler,   " Thingamajiggy ".
My father built a wooden stand for it.
This is the perfect recipe for this machine!

Peace in the Kitchen!
