Apple Dessert

A few Octobers while I was in college I would go to General Conference with my grandma, mom, cousin, and whomever else was there.  Afterwards, we would pick boxes and boxes of apples from my aunt and uncle’s house.  I think they had 11 apple trees.  My roomies and I then had the daunting task of cooking/ eating/ giving away apples for weeks!  We had a similar experience with watermelons every year as well!  Those were fun times =o)

Well I had some peeled and cored apples in our deep freeze that I finally pulled out today (since it’s a cold cloudy wintery Vegas day) and threw together with some other ingredients to make my Aunt Susan’s famous Apple Dessert.  This recipe is nice since it uses apples and is NOT an apple crisp.  It’s more like warmed apples on the bottom with a sugar cookie topping.  It became one of my favorites back in college so hopefully it tastes just as good now.  (We have to let it cool and we should probably eat dinner first before we try it.)  Here’s the super simple recipe:


peel/core/ slice 5 C of apples (about 12 med apples)

1 stick melted butter (or margarine)

2 C flour

1 1/2 C sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350.  Butter bottom of 9×13 dish.  Spread apple slices in pan.  Mix remaining ingredients until cookie dough consistency is reached.  Spread dough (use fingers) on top of apples.  Sprinkle more sugar across the top of the dough.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Let cool and serve warm or cold.

Note: I doubled the dough recipe since it looked like I had a lot of apples to cover and it took quite a while to cook through.  We’ll eat it after dinner and I’ll let you know what I thought.  So far, the cooked dough I keep picking off is delicious =o)

      As for the dessert- pretty good! We couldn’t eat all of it so next time I will make 2 and freeze one. I want to experiment a bit with adding cinnamon to the apples and maybe having it be more of an apple pie filling with the cookie topping rather than just warm apples with the cookie on top. It was really good and my boys ate it!
