For the Filling

  • 3 lb apples peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup red wine

For the Topping

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup plus 3 tbsp granulated sugar divided
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon divided
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted cold butter cubed
  • 1/4 cup hot water


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x13-in or large round baking pan.

For the Filling

  • Add sliced apples, brown sugar, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, vanilla, water, and wine in a large bowl. Toss to combine. Transfer apples to prepared baking pan and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 20 minutes.
  • While the apples are cooking, prepare the topping.

For the Topping

  • Combine flour, 1 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times to combine.
  • Add cold butter and pulse until sand-like texture. Add hot water until a dough forms. The mixture should be the consistency of drop biscuits. Add 1 -2 tablespoons at a time if your dough is too dry.
  • Once apples have cooked, use a large scoop or a spoon to drop the dough over the apples. Combine the remaining sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the dough. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes.
