Bake 30-60 minutes, depending on the apple.
Check apples after thirty minutes.

If they are not ready, cover and place back into the oven.
Check every 15 minutes.
The apples are ready when they are very soft and will crumble when you squeeze them.
Place apples into a bowl and mash as you would potatoes.
Some apples will be dry enough to absorb all of the water in the dish.
Some will be watery and my only need some or no liquid.
Taste the mashed apples and decide if you want to add the sweetener.
