I tore this recipe out of Family Circle. I have not tried it yet but it sounded very easy to do. Would be great topped with vanilla ice cream

We loved this pie. I did add in 1 tsp. cinnamon with the brown sugar, and used 3/4 c. flour instead of the cup listed, and I used 4 lg. apples and it was perfect! I also squeezed in juice from half a lemon. Thank you for this yummy old fashioned pie!

this was pretty good but not nearly enough apples, I would suggest mabey five, also I think there is a little too much flour for the crumb mixture, I will make again but with some alterations, thanks Mary!
