Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a casserole very well. Put in a layer of soft bread crumbs. On top of the crumbs put down a layer of butter, sliced thinly. On top of the butter put down a layer of GOOD peeled apples. On top of that put a layer of tart currant jelly. Repeat these layers until your dish is full, ending with a layer of bread crumbs and butter. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the top crust is lightly browned. Five minutes before it is done, pour over the top 2 jiggers of VERY GOOD sherry. Let it soak through in the oven for 5 minutes. Serve with Sherry.

Personal Notes:
All of Aunt Harriet's dishes were very good!
She included this note when she sent me this recipe: Uncle Paul prefers plain cream. For a party it might be gala to serve ice cream. But this is a delicious dessert. The nice thing is, you can make any amount - 3 or 4 apples is plenty, just choose your casserole and go by that.
