Alternate layers of potatoes and apples in the baking pan. Sprinkle each layer with brown sugar and cinnamon. Place 1/4 teaspoon of butter around the layers of potatoes and apples.
Pour the apple water or apple juice down the side of the baking dish to leave the spice and sugar undisturbed.

Bake for 1 hour.
