4 large Golden Delicious apples, cut into wedges, peeled and cored
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Streusel Topping:
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose white flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup broken walnuts
1/4 cup raisins
Heavy cream or vanilla yogurt, optional topping


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Arrange the apple wedges in a single layer in the baking dish.
2. In a large bowl cream the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Stir the whole wheat flour, white flour, cinnamon and nutmeg until blended. Add to the butter and work in with a fork or fingers until the mixture is crumbly. Add the walnuts and raisins.
3. Squeezing the streusel topping between your fingers distribute it in clumps evenly over the apples.
4. Bake in preheated oven 30 minutes or until the streusel is browned and crisp. Serve warm with heavy cream or vanilla yogurt spooned over each serving.

Don't be intimidated, streusel is simply the German for "sprinkle", which is exactly the method employed in making this crisply topped dessert.
