This is delicious!! I use vanilla ice cream to top this one! ; )

I lightly sprinkled cinnamon and ginger over the apples before adding the topping. Because it was taking too long to cool, I poured a little half and half over it and then topped it with whipped cream. Though the next time I'll add a little less brown sugar, this was delicious!

- 2 cups unbleached flour
- 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

- 5 large apples (2 to 3 pounds --preferably Granny Smith--pippin or other tart variety)
- 1⁄2-1 teaspoon grated lemons, zest of or 1⁄2-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 -3 tablespoon sugar (depending upon tartness of apples)
- whipped cream, optional
- frozen yogurt or vanilla ice cream (optional)
