Submitted by Penny Bailey <>Apple Turn-Over Pudding, Baked

Apples, sugar, butter, nutmeg, a little salt and pie-paste. Directions-Sufficient nice tart apples to fill such a pudding-dish as the family demands; peel, slice and put into the dish, which has been buttered; cover with good pie-paste, and bake in a quick oven. When done, "turn-over" upon suitable plate, and spread upon the apples 3 or 4 table-spoons of sugar, and butter half the size of an egg. and a pinch of salt, mixing with a spoon a little on the top; then grate on some nutmeg. Serve hot. The sugar, butter, and nutmeg on it form a sauce, but milk or cream passed with it will suit some better. Of course, this may be "turned over" with peaches as well as with apples.
