“I needed to use up some apples, and I found this recipe in Taste of Home's Family Favorites. Next time I'll throw in some peaches or blueberries or rhubarb or all 3 with the apples. I did put cinnamon in with the sugar and cornstarch because I thought it sounded good (the recipe doesn't call for it). This is faster and simpler than an apple pie and reminds me of eating an apple cake. YUM! One of the tricks my Mom taught me growing up is to save your butter wrappers after you use the butter because you can grease your pans with it (which is exactly what I did instead of spraying PAM on it). You save money, and you make sure you use all the butter...Serve this with whipped cream (my favorite) or vanilla ice cream. Reheats well.”
