Apple Crisp (over 100 yrs old)

If a recipe is that old and is still around, it should be a good one right?! I grew up surrounded by apple orchards so I've had my fair share of apple pie, apple crisp, apple cobbler, dried apples, apple dip, apple juice...and the list goes on. This is my all time favorite apple crisp and nothing beats dishing up a nice warm bowl of this and topping it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!

6 medium apples, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup sugar

1 cup white sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt (I use 1/4 tsp)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
(I ALWAYS double the topping)

1/2 cup butter, melted

Mix apple slices, 1/4 cup sugar, and cinnamon. Put into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, mix sugar, flour, salt, and baking powder. Add egg and mix until it looks like crumbs, the size of peas. Sprinkle over apples. Drizzle 1/2 cup butter over top of crumb mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until light brown. Let cool 5 minutes. Serve with ice cream or cool whip.
