  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 4 tablespoons water

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.) In a large bowl, combine flour sugar, salt and baking powder. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix egg yolk and water together and mix into flour until it forms a ball. Roll out to fit the bottom of a 10×15 inch pan.

In a large bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons flour, sugar and cinnamon. Pour filling into pie crust and dot with 2 tablespoons butter.

In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 2/3 cup brown sugar and 2/3 cup butter. Cut in the butter until crumbly, then sprinkle over apples.

Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until topping is golden brown.
