  • About


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • About cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 sour apples
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Little cinnamon


Mix and sift the dry ingredients, work in shortening with tips of fingers, or cut in with knives; add milk with the well beaten egg, gradually mixing with a knife. Dough must be soft enough to spread in a shallow baking pan. Have ready, pared, cored and cut in quarters, the apples and when dough has been spread in pan, press apples into dough in parallel rows. Sprinkle the apples with the sugar and cinnamon. Bake in hot oven about ½ hour. Serve hot with a Lemon Sauce.
