Easy Apple Dessert

I was looking for an easy dessert and found this delightful recipe at the Pioneer Woman Cooks. If you decide to make it, you might want to try the original over at her place. I have a hard time following recipes, which is why my own are constantly evolving. I will have to add a photo later.

3 apples, peeled & sliced (I used Jazz Apples)
7 slices wheat bread (Mine was small, so I used more)
3/4 cup butter (I cut this back to 1/2 cup, making it a little dry, but still good.)
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons water (I used less as my bread was soft.)
1 tsp. cinnamon (Original recipe didn't have this.)

Cut bread into small pieces or crumb size. Using a large pie pan, grease with some of the butter. Add 1/2 of the brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 of the apples, 1/2 of the breadcrumbs. Repeat, ending with breadcrumbs. I grated the rest of the butter over the top, as it spreads more evenly. If you do this, keep the butter in refrigerator until ready to use or it will be too soft. Sprinkle dish with water and a little more brown sugar, and bake in a 375-degree oven, covered in foil, until done—about 45 minutes to an hour. Remove foil in last few minutes of baking to brown the top.

Yay! I'm glad you posted this, I read about it on your other blog. My SIL made another one of Pioneer Woman's desserts, I think they were apple dumplings? She said they were fabulous.
