"... And pluck till time and times are done; The silver apples of the moon; The golden apples of the sun." — Irish poet W.B. Yeats

1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon brandy extract
1 large Granny Smith apple, cored and thinly sliced
1 large winesap apple, cored and thinly sliced
2 teaspoons butter or margarine, melted
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons apple jelly
