Almost as good as pie, with half the calories and it's in the oven in 10 minutes!
- Enough for a small mini casserole dish that will serve 3-4. Double the recipe for an 8x8 pan; quadruple it for a 9x13 pan.
- 3 good-sized fresh fall apples - Cortland or McIntosh are both great
- ½ c sugar
- 1 tsp China Cinnamon
- ¼ tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 stick cold butter (4 T)
- ½ c flour
- 1/3 c sugar
- ½ tsp China Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350Ã‚Â°F.
Grease the bottom only of a small (4 C or so) casserole dish. Peel and core the apples, slice and place in a bowl. Top with sugar, cinnamon and vanilla, toss to coat. Set aside while preparing topping.
Make the streusel by cutting the cold butter into a bowl, adding flour, sugar and cinnamon, and rubbing it through your fingers until the streusel is a coarse, sandy/pebbly texture.
Put the seasoned apples into the pan, top generously with the streusel, and bake about 30 minutes, until the streusel is golden brown and the apple is starting to bubble up through the topping.
