We DO like our butter here.
We also like apples...
okay..and flour and sugar...
I have played with this recipe over the years
and it is pretty darned good -
if I do say so myself.
I made this when my cousins were here.
One cousin contacted me for the recipe
so I assume that means it was good.
Anyway-that meant I needed to type it out.
Here it is.
Grease a 9x13 pan. Preheat oven to 300
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar (white)
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon ( I used Apple Pie spice)
dash of salt
Add above to:
Two sticks butter
Cream two sticks butter and blend in 4 room temperature eggs(that is important-don't use cold eggs)
Add the flour mixture above.
Stir until well blended.
Then stir in:
4 cups peeled apple chunks
2 cups walnuts
Spread in greased pan.
Bake ONE hour a 300. It is hard to test for doneness because the apples stay "wet". It should look a bit "dry" on top. You may have to add additional time depending on how much water your apples have in them.
Cool completely and frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 stick butter
3/4 pound confectionery sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 -8 oz pkg cream cheese
Cream butter and cream cheese together and add sugar. Beat well and then add the vanilla.
I also sprinkle the top very lightly with the Apple Pie spice after it is frosted.
Serve with good hot coffee or tea or ice cold milk.,
I have two of the three girls here this weekend.
I think we might make a pan of this for fun-
just in case they are thinking about getting skinny on me!
Have a wonderful day-
I will visit as I can!
