For the Apple Filling:

4 cups tart apples, peeled, chopped
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon butter, softened

For the Topping:

1/2 cup flour, sifted
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 egg, slightly beaten

In a medium bowl, combine apple filling. Lightly buttered 9-inch square pan and put filling in to pan. Cut up 1 tablespoon butter into small chunks and place on top of apples. Combine all topping ingredients. Beat with wooden spoon until batter is smooth.

Drop batter in 9 portions, over the apples, spacing evenly. Batter will spread during baking.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes at 375° or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown.
