Linquenda's Apple Crumble Tart

“I made this to take to a friends party, and it was so well-received that I thought that I'd post it. Its an old recipe that I saved from a magazine many years ago, Your Family, August 1991. very simple, and fail-proof! I use butter, and brown sugar, personal taste. Granny Smith apples are a tart green cooking apple.”
