  • 2 tbsp butter or margarine
  • Topping:
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

In a large bowl, toss apples with lime juice. Combine dry ingredients, add to apples and toss lightly. Place bottom pastry in 9 inch pie plate, fill with apple mixture.
Dot with butter. Cover with top crust. Flute edges high, cut steam vents.
