2 packed apples, sliced
1 cup unsalted butter
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 tablespoons shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Sprinkle sliced apples onto a large baking sheet. Using an electric food processor, pulse apples and butter in a single motion until butter and flour are no longer clumped. Transfer to pie crust and sprinkle with flour, cornstarch and baking soda. Then pour chocolate over apples.
Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Use an electric food processor or large spoon to evenly mix the milk and chocolate chips. Pat pie crust into pie crust and press mixture into apples by spoon. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until apples are tender. Chill before serving.
I am so excited! I remember my mother-in-law bringing this salad to her weekly meal. I remember spilling a cup or two of it around the table and it was delicious. So easy.
