Make sure the butter is softened, then chunk it up while
mixing it in the batter. Split the batter into two (one half for the
bottom crust, one half for the top crust). Spray your pan, then place
the half for the bottom crust into your pan. Do NOT pat it down
unless you want it to be as hard as a rock. Add the apple mix, then
top with remaining batter. Again, do NOT pat it down. Bake
uncovered at 350° for 35 minutes or more.
