After mentioning the Apple Goodie yesterday I received a lot of emails requesting the recipe so I decided to share it today.
3 large apples (a tart variety work best)
Peel apples. I like shredding them but finely diced or very thinly sliced would work as well. Spread in bottom of 9x13 pan.
½ cup butter
½ cup hot water
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
Melt butter. Add sugar and stir. Add water, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir well and bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour over apples.
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
½ tsp baking powder
2/3 cup softened butter.
In a medium bowl mix all ingredients together until you have nice uniform crumbs. Sprinkle over the apples and pat firmly.
Bake in a preheated 350º oven for 45 minutes. You have several options as a way to serve. Absolutely delicious when served hot with vanilla ice-cream. Or if you were serving it to my brothers they would request cold milk and practically drown the apple goodie in it. We prefer to eat it cold most of the time.
