one 9 inch deep dish piecrust
1/4 cup sugar
3 TBSP all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
5 1/2 cups (approx) peeled and thinly sliced apples

Heat oven to 375 deg. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Toss the apples with the sugar mixture and pour them into the prepared piecrust mounding them in the center. With a pastry blender, thoroughly combine the crumb topping ingredients. Sprinkle the topping over the apple mixture. Bake the pie for 20 to 30 minutes, then cover with foil and bake for another 20 minutes, until the apples are tender.
