  • 2 1/2 cups apples sliced about 2 large or 3 medium
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar up to 1 cup depending on sweetness of apples
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter 1/2 cup


  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Peel and slice 2 1/2 to 3 cups of apples. That will be two larger apples or three smaller. Avoid Red Delicious and Macintosh apples.
  • Prep an 8-inch square baking dish with a butter coat.
  • Combine 1 cup flour with 3/4 to 1 cup sugar. Vary the sugar by the sweetness of the apples. Mine were sweeter, so they got 3/4 cup. Add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Mix well.
  • Dice up one stick of butter. (that is 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons). Cut butter into dry ingredients.
  • Spread the sliced apples in the dish. Spread topping over apples
  • Bake for 40 minutes until golden brown.


I believe it is more a matter of individual taste. Probably the apples you have are fine other than Red Delicious or Macintosh.
