Scalloped Apple Casserole!


If you like cooked apples, like my recipe for  Fried Apples  or  Miss Annabelle's Baked Apples, this "Scalloped Apple Casserole" is a must try!!!  It's a little different way to cook apples, but it's delicious!  My husband, who can be a picky eater, loved this casserole!  He definitely gave it two thumbs up! 

I cooked this for Thanksgiving and it was so good with our turkey and dressing.  It would be great with ham also! 

This can be prepped ahead of time also and then baked, which is always nice for the holidays. 

Here is what you will need:

7 -8 apples, cored, peeled and diced 
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup butter, divided
1/4 cup flour
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 sleeve of Ritz crackers, crushed 

Preheat oven to 350.

Place the peeled, cored and diced apples in a 2 quart casserole that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.

Sprinkle with white sugar, brown sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon.  Add 1 tsp vanilla.  Slice 1/2 of the butter in pats and place over the apples.  Sprinkle the flour over all.  Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese.  With a large spoon toss to mix all of the ingredients.  

Top with the other cup of shredded cheese!

Top the cheese evenly with the crushed Ritz crackers and slice the rest of the butter in thin pats and place on top. Place in a 350 degree oven and bake for 40 - 45 minutes!  

It should be slightly browned on top and hot and bubbly.  If it starts to get too brown on top, you can lay a piece of foil on top the casserole dish to keep it from getting too brown.  

This is one of our new favorites and it's a perfect holiday recipe, but we will enjoy it year round I am sure!!!   It's so yummy I made it twice in one week!!!
