Apple Crisp

6  Tart apples
1 cup Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 teaspoons Lemon juice
3/4 cup Flour; sifted
1/8 teaspoon Salt
6 tablespoons Butter
1/4 cup nuts; chopped
  Whipped cream or ice cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Peel, core and slice apples into a bowl.  Add 1/2 of the sugar, the spices and lemon juice.  Mix lightly and pour into a buttered 1 1/2-quart casserole.  Blend the remaining sugar, flour, salt and butter to a crumbly consistency.  Add the nuts and sprinkle over the apple mixture.

Bake 45 minutes or until the apples are tender and the crust is nicely browned.  Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
