Jessica’s notes: Apple sizes vary a lot; if you have large apples, I suggest using three instead of four. I love this recipe made with butter and brandy, calvados, or rum. You can make a gluten-free version by substituting the flour for a gluten free flour mix, or a combination of two parts oat flour and one part rice flour.
