My grandmother always made this cake for either Thanksgiving or Christmas or sometimes just because. It was a labor of love because she had picked, peeled, cut and dried the apples at home each and every year. The other part of the "cake" was large sugar cookies. The longer it sets, the better it gets.

How to Make Dried Apple Stack Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Pick, peel and cut your apples to dry on the dehydrator. When the apples are dry, place in a ziplock type bag and store in the freezer until ready to cook them. Take the dried apples out of the freezer and put in a large pot. Cover them with water. (In today's society, a person would just purchase 4 packages of the dried apples.) Mash your apples and add the sugar and test for desired sweetness. The apples are done when they are really sweet and chunky. The color should be brown.
  2. While apples are cooking, make at least one or two batches of your favorite sugar cookies recipes. Use about a cup of flour or less to roll out your cookies after they have chilled in the refrigerator.

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

    Use a large skillet top to cut out your cookies and then bake in the oven on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes or until golden brown. You should have at least 8 to 10 large cookies the size of a dinner plate.

    Cool the cookies on a rack until they can be handled. Use a large cake plate to stack your cake on.
  3. Take a sugar cookie and place on the cake plate. Spread apple mixture in a thin even layer. Add another cookie and repeat until you have at least 10 layers of each with a cookie on top.

    The longer this cake sits the better it get.
