Scottish Apple Crumble

1 t cinnamon
1/2 t vanilla
pinch salt
1/4 c white sugar
1/2 water
8 granny smith apples, peeled and sliced

1/4 white sugar
1/4 brown sugar
1/2 flour
1/4 cold butter (cubed and refrigerated till ready to make topping)

Combine first 5 ingredients in 9x13inch lasagna style dish. Add apples as they are sliced and stir well to combine the base ingredients.

Combine first 3 topping ingredients in food processor and pulse to mix well.
Add in cold cubed butter and pulse JUST TILL LIGHTLY MIXED IN! There needs to be pea sized pieces of butter left in the mixture in order for them to melt in the oven and form the chewy bits in the topping that makes this so yummy.

Bake at 450 for 10 minutes then lower the temperature to 350 and bake for 40 minutes.

Serve warm with ice cream.

I have been known to double the topping ingredients :)
