A favorite fall dish which brings back so many memories of my early childhood in Middle falls n.y. visiting my dads mom, Sitting at her kitchen table "helping" make meals.Nobody knew where the "Grunt" name came from until one day at the library in a book on colonial New England recipes they mentioned the name Grunt in the same sentence with apple slumps and cobblers. The name came from the sound it Made while cooking "Bubbling'or "Grunting'.This originally used homemade biscuit crust and homemade vanilla sauce instead of bisquick and cook and serve vanilla pudding.
Mix cut apples,sugar,salt,cinnamon and nutmeg. put into baking dish and dot with butter. Drop biscuit crust on top and spread across pan.Bake for 1 hour until the apples are done and the crust is brown.Serve Each Individual dish with homemade vanilla sauce on top, or cook and serve vanilla pudding still warm so its a sauce like consistency.
