Ingredients

  • 1 lb. wide egg noodles
  • 6 tbsp. melted butter, (4 to combine with noodles, 2 to dot the casserole before baking)
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp. raisins (dark or white)
  • 5 cups sliced, peeled apples (your choice)
  • 1/2 cup blackberries, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a springform pan and set aside.
  2. Cook and drain the noodles. Mix the noodles with 4 tbsp. of melted butter and stir gently. Add the salt, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and raisins and set aside.
  3. Starting with the noodles, lay alternate layers of apples and noodles, reserving several slices of apples to decorate the top. Once you have finished layering the casserole, use the reserved apple slices to fan out a layer of apples slices on top in a pretty fashion.
  4. Dot the top of the casserole with 2 tbsp. of butter cut up in small pieces. Bake for 50 minutes until apples are tender.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon and decorate with blackberries before serving.
