  • 7 large Granny Smith apples, washed, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • lemon juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

for the topping

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup softened butter


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Lightly grease a 9 X 13 baking dish.
  • Wash apples, then peel, core and slice them up.
  • Arrange apples so that they cover the bottom of the pan and sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown.
  • Sprinkle with sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon, and mix well.
  • Cut the butter and arrange over the apple mixture.

for the topping

  • Combine the flour, sugar and cinnamon in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Cut the butter into thin slices, and cut into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Cover the apples with the topping, and pat down lightly.
  • Bake for 50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and apples are soft.


You can use 7 large apples or about 10 small ones. There should be enough apples to cover the bottom of the baking dish. 
Use room temperature butter, not super cold and not melted for best results.
