Grandma's Apple Kuchen

This recipe really is from my Grandma! It is not in my cookbook, and it really is one of my favorites (what was I thinking to not include it?) Honey in this kuchen brings out the great flavor in the apples.

1/3 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg yolk
1 1/8 c. flour
1 tsp. salt

Mix together the above and pat on sides and bottom of a greased 9" x 9" pan. (Note: if you only have an 8" x 8" pan, just toss some of the mixture.)

Add about 7 c. peeled and sliced apples.
3/4 c. honey
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. water

Mix honey, flour and water together and pour over apples. Sprinkle with lots of cinnamon. Bake in preheated 350 oven for 1 1/2-2 hours. You may need to cover with foil part of the time to fully cook apples. Serves: about 9

Did you know there are 7,000 varieties of apples in the world? Apple seeds were brought to America from Europe. The crab apple is one of a few varieties of apple that is native to North America.
