Apple Washington

     I grew up living in an apartment.  One of my greatest memories is coming through the front door of our building and being enveloped in the warm smell of baked apples.  I knew at that very moment that autumn had arrived and Michigan apples were ripe!  I also knew that my mom had made my very favorite dessert….Apple Washington.  This is a recipe my grandmother passed down to my mom when she and my dad were married; it had been my dad's favorite, too!


  • 5 medium apples (use tart apples…granny smith, washington) peeled and roughly sliced
  • 1-1/2 C. Bisquik
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1-1/2 C. Brown Sugar
  • 1/2-3/4 C. softened  butter


  1. Place cut apples in the bottom of a 8x8 greased baking dish.
  2. Mix next four ingredients in a large bowl with a fork until lumpy.  If the mixture is too dry to form lumps, add more butter 2 TBS at a time
  3. Spread Bisquik mixture over apples.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until apples are tender.
  5. Serve Warm

(Also delicious at room temperature)

Enjoy a la mode; or as my dad would with a slice of cheddar cheese.  As he says, "An apple pie without the cheese is like a hug without the squeeze!" -Dale Rowell (my dad)
