The Easiest, Most Scrumptious Apple Pie Ever

8 cups sliced apples, with or without peelings (better without)
1/4 cup tapioca         1 cup sugar      1 tsp cinnamon       Sprinkle of nutmeg
3/4 cup water        3 TBS lemon juice

Prepare apples & drain.  Mix dry ingredients, then add water and lemon juice.  Mix with apples and spread in 9x12 baking dish.  Topping:  Mix together 1+1/2 cup flour, 3/4 cup sugar (or less), 1 tsp. baking powder, and 1 tsp. salt.  Cut in 1 cup (2 cubes) softened butter until mixture is crumbly, then sprinkle over apples.  Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.  

PS....Thank you my dear sister for sharing your EASY recipes with me!  You know me...if it's not simple to make, even the best recipes will probably never be tested in my kitchen.  And yes, even the very best recipes have been turned to "toast" in my kitchen, too (I inherited those genes).
