Use a firmer apple for this, and top with ice cream!

This recipe is ok at best. The crust didn't get crunchy and it took me 45+ minutes to get the apples to get soft (I used Fuji apples) and that made the bottom burn. Also when I added the second half of the crunch to the top of it, it also did not get crunchy either. I suggest using less apples and a different recipe for the crunch then maybe it will turn out better.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 375 degrees (set oven rack to second-lowest position).
  2. Butter a 9 x 9-inch or an 11 x 7-inch baking pan.
  3. In a mixing bowl combine all the butter crunch; mix well to combine with a wooden spoon.
  4. Sprinkle HALF of the mixture onto the bottom of the pan and press down light with back of a spoon.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  6. In a mixing bowl combine the apple slices, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg (if using) and melted butter; toss to combine.
  7. Spoon the mixture into the baked crust.
  8. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until apples are tender (it might take more or less time depending on what kind of apples you are using).
  9. Remove from oven and sprinkle the remaining butter crunch over the apples, then return to oven for about 10 minutes.
  10. Cool to room temperature.
