Mom's Apple Crisp

(I think this is an old 4-H recipe.  All I know for sure is that it's been in my taste experience forever.  It is the first dessert I make every Fall.  Its simplicity highlights the flavors of Autumn... apples and cinnamon.)

Mom's Apple Crisp

1 c. sugar (white or brown or combination of the two)
1 c. flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c. butter
4 c. cored, peeled, sliced apples
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tb. water (optional... use if apples are not very juicy)

Preheat oven to 375°.  Combine the dry ingredients.  Cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Set aside.
Combine apple slices and cinnamon.  Place in a 8" baking dish.  Top with butter mixture.  Bake for 45 mins. or until apples are soft and crisp is bubbling.  (You may need to place a baking sheet on the rack below the crisp if the apples are extra juicy.)
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream while watching the harvest moon rise.
