Recipe - Swedish Apple Pie

Ok, so technically this recipe from my mom is called Swedish apple pie.  I call it, "I'm Too Lazy to Roll a Crust Apple Pie".  With heaps of apples and simple ingredients like butter, sugar and flour, how can you not love this delicious combination?  It is so good!

Apples peeled, sliced and ready to be sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.  These tart Paula Reds brown quickly, but no worries, they are still delicious!

Topping mixed and ready to go.

Apples with topping, uncooked.  I recommend using a rubber spatula scoop the topping out of the bowl.  Be sure to distribute topping evenly, but there is no need to smooth it out.

Just enough browning.  I cooked mine for 50 minutes this time.  Bake times may vary based on oven.
