This isn't the apple crisp we all know . . . the one with a nutty oatmeal crust. This is different . . . and delicious. If you can get McIntosh apples, do it. Otherwise a Granny Smith works perfectly.
1 cup brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup water
Pare and quarter apples and cut lengthwise into four slices. Put sliced apples in bottom of buttered dish. Add water. Combine sugar, cinnamon and flour and rub in butter to make crumbs. Spread crumbs over apples evenly and bake at 375 for 40 minutes.
