Apple Crisp Elaine & Craig

2 pounds tart green apples (about 5 to 5 & 1/2 cups sliced)
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine

Peel the apples and slice them thinly. Put them in a rather shallow 1-quart casserole dish and sprinkle them with water. Put them aside while you prepare the crust.

Sift together the dry ingredients and cut in the butter or margarine until all is well combined. Sprinkle this mixture thickly and evenly over the apples. Don't mix the two together.

Cover the casserole and bake in a 350-degree oven for 1/2 hour, then uncover and bake an additional 1/2 hour. The crust will be crisp on top, and will have partly seeped down through the apples, flavoring them and binding them slightly together. Serve hot or cold.
