This scrumptious dessert might seem time-consuming, but it takes no time at all. 

Although in appearance it might resemble an apple crisp, this recipe intentionally lacks the oats, making it more of a shortbread. 

The apples need to be sliced pretty thin to cook thoroughly and the topping is made best if you have a pastry cutter. 

If you have any lumps while mixing, no worries, they’ll melt away when you start baking. Add a scoop of ice cream on the side to make it even better.
