Deep Dish AppleUser Submitted Recipe
6 large apples (an assortment such as Granny Smith, Cortland, Honey Crisp work well together)
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup granulated sugar, divided
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon table salt
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, slightly soft
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Peel, core and slice apples into half inch slices and place in a ceramic/oven-proof 2 qt. bowl. Pour lemon juice over apples. Mix the cinnamon with 1/2 cup of the sugar and sprinkle over apples, stirring from the bottom of the bowl to distribute well.
Now combine remaining 1/2 cup sugar with flour, salt and butter and work it together either with your hands or a pastry blender until it sticks together when you grasp a handful. Pat this topping mixture over the apples in the bowl and bake in preheated oven for 45-55 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
