Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
 
In a large bowl mix, apples, butter, vanilla, sugar and eggs.  In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, baking soda, nuts and cinnamon.  Combine mixture into one large bowl - you may have to mix with your hands because the texture is sticky.  Place mixture in three 9X13 pans.  Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.
