Strawberry Apple Crumble

We had a big bag of apples from my brother-in-law sitting on our counter, and I decided I should make something with them.  I keep losing all my apple crumble recipes, so I found a new one to try tonight.  I modified this from a recipe on AllRecipes based on some user comments and what I had on-hand.  I'm still kind of in heaven over how good it was.  Even Jim loved it and he typically doesn't like apple desserts.

8-10 apples, peeled and sliced (I actually used 7 apples but I think it could have used a little more)
1 package strawberry flavored Jell-O (I used a 3 oz pkg but the original recipe called for a 6 oz pkg)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
heavily sprinkled cinnamon
light sprinkling of nutmeg

Slice your apples and lay them out in a 9 x 12 baking dish (I put mine in two 8 x 8 dishes).  Sprinkle your dry Jell-O package over the apples.

Melt your butter, and mix it with the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.  I didn't measure the cinnamon and nutmeg but I used a lot of cinnamon and sprinkled the nutmeg 3 or 4 times (so 3 or 4 dashes)?   The original recipe didn't call for cinnamon or nutmeg but I couldn't imagine apple crumble without them, and I'm glad I added them.

Sprinkle the topping over the apples, and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.  Serve with vanilla ice cream or some kind of whipped cream topping.
