1kg apples (any variety - I prefer green apples)
100g butter
100g brown sugar
2g cinnamon
5g vanilla
Squeeze of lemon juice

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
In a large bowl melt the butter, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir to combine.
Peel and evenly slice the apples.
Toss the apples in the large bowl with the sauce.
Turn the coated apples onto the baking tray. Pour over any remaining sauce onto the apples and then bake for approximately 20 minutes or until tender (important not to over cook or the apples will go mushy).
Allow the filling to cool to room temperature.
Ensure to strain the apples from the juice / sauce otherwise it will make the pie / pastry too watery.
