Cover a well greased oblong tin as thin as possible with raised Kuchen Dough, or with Cookie Dough. Core, pare and cut four or five apples in eighths. Lay them in parallel rows on top of the dough and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Beat the yolk of an egg, add three tablespoons cream, and drip around apples. Bake twenty or thirty minutes in hot oven, or until crust is well baked and apples are soft. Peaches or plums may be used in place of the apples; pare the peaches, cut in halves and remove the stones. If plums are used, wipe carefully, cut in halves and remove the stones. Place in parallel rows and proceed as for Apple Kuchen.

Or dip each piece of apple, peach or plum in melted butter, before placing in rows on the dough. Sprinkle plentifully with sugar, add a little cinnamon and bake in hot oven until fruit is soft and crust well browned underneath.
