My mom used to make this.
•2 cups soft breadcrumbs
•1/4 teaspoon salt
•1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
•4 cups tart sliced apples (4 medium apples)
•3/4 cup light brown sugar
•1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
•2 Tablespoons lemon juice
•1/4 cup water at room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix the breadcrumbs with the salt and melted butter or margarine, and divide the mixture into three. Place one-third in a greased 1-1/2 quart baking dish.
Sprinkle your apples with sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice, and toss to blend. Place one-half of this mixture on top of the crumbs in the baking dish. Add another one-third of the crumbs, then the remaining apples, and a final layer of crumbs. Trickle the water into the side of the dish to as not to moisten the top layer of crumbs.
Cover and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove the cover and continue to bake until the apples are tender and the crumbs a golden brown, about20 minutes. Serve warm with whipped topping or ice cream.
