  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and coat the inside of a 6-8 cup baking dish with 2 tbs of the butter.
  • Melt 5 tbs of the butter and set aside.

  • Stir until well mixed.
  • Drop the apple slices into another bowl and sprinkle them with the remaining sugar.
  • With a spatula, spread about a third of the bread crumb mixture on the bottom of the baking dish and sprinkle about half the apple slices evenly over it.
