    dk683's Note:

    This applesauce-like warm mixture can be in a pie, but I usually use it as a spread on toast or in crepes. Use whatever variety apple you want, however, I think Granny Smith apples are too tart for this recipe, but it's your choice.

    1. 1
      Preheat broiler to HIGH.
    2. 2
      In a small oven-proof dish or cast-iron skillet, place the diced apple in an even layer.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, mix the butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon, and salt with a fork or your fingers.
    4. 4
      Once this mixture comes together to the consistency of a thick paste, take small amounts and top the apple pieces with it.
    5. 5
      Place this under the broiler, stirring the mixture every 2-3 minutes so that the sugar does not burn and so the apples are evenly coated with the sugar/butter mix.
    6. 6
      Once the apples are fork tender, or once they can be easily smashed with the back of a spoon, they are done.
    7. 7
      From here, you can either keep the apples whole and bake it in a crust as a pie (you'd probably want to double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe if you plan to use it for a pie.) OR --
    8. 8
      Put the warm mixture into a food processor and pulse the mix until it forms as chunky sauce.
    9. 9
      You can use this as a dessert dip, a filling for crepes, or a spread on toasts. Basically, you can do whatever you want with the mix, whether it's been processed or not, it's delicious nonetheless.

      This seems to be a recipe for one or maybe two people. It is not a recipe for putting down large amounts of apple pie filling for use within 18 months or so.
