  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Cut 1/2 cup butter into dry mix with a pastry blender to pea size.
  • In a small bowl, beat egg with 2 T milk and add to dry mix.
  • Mix thoroughly and pat dough into a greased or oiled 9x13-inch baking dish.
  • Pare and core apples.

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