12 apples (Granny Smith or Macintosh)
1/2 C. butter (1 stick)
1 1/2 C. white granulated sugar
1/4 C. flour
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375F.
Peel and core apples, cut into eighths, then cut those pieces
in half. Melt butter in a large pan. (Bottom of a roaster is best). Add
apple chunks and keep turning the apples over until the butter
absorbed. In a separate bowl, mix sugar, flour and cinnamon together.
Sprinkle evenly over apples until well coated. Do not add water.
Put apple mixture in an ungreased 13 x 9 x 2" glass baking dish.
Cover with foil and bake 15 minutes, or until apples are soft.
Remove from oven. Increase oven temperature to 400.
Turn apples over (this is the only time you do this). Return to
oven and bake, uncovered, on top oven rack until juice is
reduced and apples start getting brown.
