Wither you call it a cobbler, streusel, or crumb bake, just don't forget to call me when it's ready! This is a wonderful way to serve some apples given to me by friends.

While traditionally served with ice cream or for that matter some cheddar cheese, a light whipped non fat topping works as well. This dish is so good it needs nothing more than friends to share it with. OK, maybe big spoons! :-)

7 to 8 large (9 cups) tart cooking apples, peeled, cored, sliced ¼-inch
½ cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar + 1 cup brown sugar
2 lg. eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ teaspoon salt
½ tsp cinnamon
½ cup of crushed ginger snaps

1 cup butter, melted

Pre-Heat oven to 350°F.
Peel, core and slice the apples, keeping them under a damp paper towel until all are ready.
Crush the ginger snaps.
Place sliced apples in ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan.

Combine ¾ cup sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon in bowl; sprinkle over apples.
Combine flour, sugar, eggs, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in bowl; beat at medium speed as you add the vanilla, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Spoon this over the apples. Sprinkle the crushed ginger snaps over that.
Carefully and slowly pour melted butter over everything. If you pour too fast it will just run over and on to the counter. Let it sink into the topping as you pour.

Place this baking dish on a large tray for the oven. This will catch any boil overs and much easier to clean.
Bake 45-55 minutes or until lightly browned and apples are tender.
Serve warm either with or without a topping or ice cream. we will send this out to our friend Peggy who is driving a stretch of old Route 66 as slave types this out.
