This recipe is a mixture of that from both sets of parents, and was
partly based on the Betty Crocker cookbook.  It has a top crumb crust,
rather than a full crust.

pastry for 9 inch one-crust pie

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
dash of salt
8 cups thinly sliced pared tart apples (about 8 medium or 6 large)

ingreg. for crumb crust:
	1/2 cup sugar
	3/4 c. flour
	1/3 c. butter or margarine
	1 tsp cinnamon
	1 tsp nutmeg
	maybe a pinch of cloves and mace

Heat oven to 450 degrees.  Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon & salt in large bowl.
Stir in apples.  Put apple-mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. (You may want 
to press apples down firmly -- they shrink a LOT!!!  You need a real mound of
apples to end up with a decent pie).    
	Mix sugar and flour for crumb crust in medium bowl.  
Cut in margarine;  add spices.  Put crumbs on top of pie -- you'll probably
need to press them onto apples to keep them from falling off.

Bake for 10 minutes;  then lower to 350 and bake for 40 more.  Check for
doneness with fork.
