This dessert is so rich and wonderful, I just could not wait until the Fall when apple harvest happens. I made it a couple of days ago and reminded me of cool days and even cooler nights.
- 1/2 cup cold Butter, cut into small cubes
- 3/4 cup Sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 4 cups Apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- 1 tablespoon Cold Water
- 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground Allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven to 375 F.
MIx flour, salt, and sugar together in large wide bowl. Using a pastry blender, 2 butter knives (or your hands) cut the cold butter into the flour mix until it forms crumbles. Spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. A regular pie dish is perfect. Place the apples in the baking dish. In a small bowl, mix water, spices and vanilla extract. Mix well. Pour over the apples. Cover with the flour butter mix. Bake until apples are tender, about 60 minutes.
