Hungarian Apple Lattice Cake – Like a pie

Use a jelly roll pan or a cookie sheet with sides for this recipe.

This recipe was passed down from a “home cook”; many such recipes take for granted that you know something about baking. Be ready to adjust oven temperatures and times to fit your oven. Use good baking apples like Granny Smith, and if you need a clue to amount of sugar to use, borrow amounts from an apple pie recipe you like. Or add to filling and taste until you like the result.
