Here's my first post on my new blog! Hurray!

I want to share a lot of things with you.  Today I am sharing a recipe that I just sent to my nephew in Wisconsin.  I have one apple tree that is loaded, and each day I could pick enough apples off the ground to make one of these desserts, but .... you know the story.   It's a simple recipe and the topping could be used with other fruit. I've tried it with a strawberry/rhubarb mixture, also very good.  Hope you enjoy it!


Spray or grease an 8" x 8" pan and pare and slice apples to
almost fill it (you'll need room for the topping)

In a medium sized bowl, combine and mix with fork:
1/3 cup melted butter or margarine
1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1 egg, unbeaten

Spread the mixture over apples.  Then sprinkle heavily
with cinnamon.  Bake at 350 deg. 40 minutes.
