Personal Notes:
For a 13 in. x 9 in. pan, double the topping and apples. You can add more apples if you think the dish is not full enough. I almost always use lemon juice because because I have it on hand, and don't have the orange juice. This recipe came from a coworker many, many years ago; she called it Happy Apples and it has become a family favorite. I have also seen the recipe in cookbooks with the title of Apple Betty, so that is what I used for this recipe.
