Directions

  1. Wash apples and soak in water to cover, overnight.
  2. Cook until very tender in the water in which they were soaked, adding more water if needed.
  3. Press through a sieve or food mill, add sugar, salt and cinnamon.
  4. Cook until thick, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.
  5. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  6. Line the bottom and halfway up the sides of a 9 x 13" pan with pastry, spread the apple mixture at least 1/2" thick over the pastry.
  7. Dot liberally with butter and cover with remaining pastry.
  8. Cut a design in the top crust to allow the steam to escape.
  9. Press edges of the pastry together and bake for ten minutes; reduce the heat to 350F and bake for 20 to 25 minutes longer, or until crust is done.
  10. Cut into squares and serve warm or cold.
