Pastry for Single-Crust Pie

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix ingredients for apple filling. Transfer filling to 9″pastry-lined pie plate. Combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkler over filling being careful to spread evenly over apple filling. Bake in 375° oven for one hour or until topping is golden and apples are tender. Serve warm.

*For apple variety, we like Granny Smith or Pink Lady in late fall, but you can use most varieties as long as they are firm and not too sweet. Best are heartier apples with a lot of acidity.
