Cooking Time:

1 hour


  • 1/2 cup cold butter (1 stick)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 4 cups apples sliced
  • 2 tblsp sugar
  • 1 tblsp water
  • 1 tblsp cinnamon (or more if you like)


Peel, core and slice apples.

Cut cold butter into chunks.

Using a pastry blender cut butter into the 1 cup of sugar, salt and flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Place the apples into an oiled 8x8 pyrex baking dish. Mix in the 2 tblsp of sugar, water and cinnamon.

Cover with the flour mixture.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven until apples are tender and bubbling (about an hour).

Hint: I double the recipe and use a 9x13 pyrex pan.

Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and viola you have a delicious fall dessert (or any other time).
