Recipe by Karen in St. Louis
I found this recipe at my local grocery store. I made it for our Thanksgiving dinner. I used Jonathon apples, but Granny Smith or any good baking apple would work. I prepared the apple layer and butternut layer the day before and then topped it and baked it right before serving. It was easy and yummy. I will make it again for my Christmas dinner.
- 3 cups apples, cored and sliced (about 1 pound)
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3 lbs butternut squash
- 1⁄4 cup butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 dash white pepper
- 1⁄2 cup corn flakes, crushed
- 1⁄3 cup pecans, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Pour over apple layer in glass baking dish.
