(I usually double this recipe.)
6 large peeled and sliced Granny Smith apples
Preheat oven to 350*
Apple mixture ingredients:
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
Combine sugar, water, cinnamon and salt and pour over sliced apples.
1 cup flour
1/2 stick of butter (6 tsp) (do not melt - let it soften naturally)
2 Tbls brown sugar
10 cinnamon graham crackers - coarsely chopped (about 1-1/2 cups)
Combine flour and sugar in a medium bowl. Cut-in the butter with a pastry blender (if you don't have a pastry blender, use 2 butter knives in a cris-cross cutting motion) until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
Gently stir in coarsely chopped graham crackers, and then sprinkle this topping over apples. Cover loosely with foil.
Bake for 30 minutes or until apples are tender. Then remove foil and bake for another 10 minutes to brown the top.
My BELOVED APPLE PEELER!!!!
My apple peeler! Handy little sucker!!!
Cut off bottom of apple so it sits nicely on the spikes.
Start turning the handle.
Turn, turn, turn.
Isn't that so much easier!
Done. Pull off apple and throw away or compost the rind.
Prepare to slice and core.
Just put a little bit of muscle into it..... and....
NOTE: This is not a photo of the same recipe supplied above. This is a lot sweeter and less crumblies. :)
