Apple Brown Betty

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

11 medium granny smith apples
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter

Peel, core and slice apples into eighths.
Spread them over the bottom of a lightly greased 9x12 inch baking pan.
Sprinkle the cinnamon over the apples.

To make the topping: combine the flour and 3/4 cup brown sugar together, cut in the butter until crumbly. Set aside. 

Make the syrup:
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup hot water
juice of 1/2 a lemon

Mix the brown sugar with the hot water and lemon juice.
Pour half of the syrup over the apples.
Sprinkle the topping mixture evenly over the top.
Pour the remaining syrup over the topping.

 Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.

We like it best served warm with vanilla ice cream.
