 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      Pounds        Apples Or Pears
                         Juice Of 1/2 Lemon
    2      Tablespoons   Maple Syrup
      3/4  Cup           Flour
      1/4  Teaspoon      Salt
    3      Tablespoons   Brown Sugar
    6      tablespoons   unsalted butter
 
 Preheat oven to 375°f.
 
 Peel, core and  slice the fruit. Toss it in a bowl  with the lemon juice to
 prevent browning. 
 Place the slices in a  lightly buttered baking dish. Drizzle with the maple
 syrup.
 
 Put the flour, salt, sugar, and butter  into the bowl of a food processor
 fitted with a metal blade and process briefly. Or you may cut the butter in
 with a pastry cutter or two knives. The mixture should be crumbly.
 
 Cover the fruit evenly with the flour mixture and bake for 45 minutes or until
 the juices are bubbling. Let sit for 5 minutes and serve with whipped cream,
 vanilla ice cream, or creme fraiche.

 NOTES : This recipe is especially delicious when made with a mixture of
 apples, such as Empire or Delicious (sweet) and Macoun or Macintosh ( slightly
 tart).
