7 or 8 juicy tart cooking apples
3 Tablespoons butter or margarine
Cups Sugar
Teaspoon cinnamon, if desired
Unbaked 8-inch pie shell

Streusel Topping:
Cup enriched flour
Teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 Cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/3 Cup butter or margarine

Peel apples; quarter and remove core.
Cut each quarter into 4 slices lengthwise.
Melt butter in saucepan; add apples
and toss about until each slice is well coated.
Add sugar which may be mixed with cinnamon, and again toss about to distribute through apples. Arrange apples compactly in pastry lined pan.

They should be slightly heaped in center. Make streusel by mixing flour thoroughly with cinnamon. Stir in brown sugar. Cream butter until soft and smooth and work in the flour-cinnamon-sugar mixture until well blended. Sprinkle this crumbly mixture over top of pie.

Bake in very hot oven (400 to 450 F. depending on stove) about 20 minutes, or until crust is well browned.

Reduce heat to slow oven (325 F.) and continue baking
apples are translucent and tender. Cool.
