I mixed the white sugar, flour, cinnamon and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg with the apples and cut out the water content - not needed since it is naturally very juicy. Use only Granny Smith apples or it will come out too mushy or too sweet. Cut down on the amount of brown sugar in the topping or mixed in with the apples - too sweet and drowned out the great taste of the apples. Also, double the topping and instead of melting the butter, cut it into the topping to resemble course bread crumbs for that crispy/crumbly top. For that special touch, add coarsely chopped pecans or any other nut you prefer - I added pecans and it was just delicious.
