Ingredients:2 C. sifted flour
1 C. brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 C. unsalted butter
6-8 large apples
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 C. sugar
Preparation:Mix together flour, brown sugar, salt and butter to make a crumbly mixture that is well blended (pastry blender works the charm). Slice pared and cored apples into large buttered baking dish, and add sugar to your taste (more if the apples are especially tart), lemon juice and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon. Cover with dry mixture. Bake in a moderate oven, 350-375 F, until apples are tender, about 30-40 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream (or both!).
Notes:I've given the recipe the way I got it from my grandmother. Here are modern amendations:

Use 1/4 C. sugar sprinkled over the apples. Temp needs to be on the high side of the range and it takes 40-50 minutes to cook. Use pastry blender if you want lumpy crumbly textured crisp; a food processor would make the texture too uniform.
Equipment:pastry blender
