Dutch Apple Pie

This recipe is, TO DIE FOR GOOD, or atleast I think so! It's an apple pie recipe, but I substituted pears in place, and I made extra pie crust so I could spread it across a cookie sheet, then it came out kind of "tart" like, I then graciously called them "pear tarts"!

8-10 large Golden Delicious or Granny Smith apples, pared, peeled & sliced
Juice of one lemon, toss and coat apples

In small mixing bowl add:
1 cup of brown sugar
1 heaping TBsp. flour
dash of salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Mix above ingredients together; pour over apples and toss well.

Place apple mixture in pie shell (unbaked), dot with butter (approx. 2 TBsp.)

1 cup flour
1/2 - 3/4 c. white sugar
1 tsp, cinnamon
dash of salt

Mix together in small bowl then add: 1 cube [1/2 c.] of soft butter. cut into flour mixture until it resembles crumbs; sprinkle over top of apples.

Bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes, lower temp to 350 and bake for 30 minutes more.
