Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix 1 1/4 cup flour, baking powder, 2 tsp sugar, and salt and sift once.
  3. Cut 1/2 cup butter into dry mix with a pastry blender to pea size.
  4. In a small bowl, beat egg with 2 T milk and add to dry mix.
  5. Mix thoroughly and pat dough into a greased or oiled 9x13-inch baking dish.
  6. Pare and core apples.
  7. Cut into thin wedge slices and place on dough in rows until covered. We would cover the thin end of one apple with the thick end of the other.

  9. Spread dry topping over dotted apples, and bake in oven for 30-45 minutes, until golden brown.
