Cut butter in with pastry blender or process in food processor until the batter chunks are the size of peas. Stir in eggs and mix well. Remove 1 cup dough; form into a ball and set aside. Use a spoon to pat remaining dough into a greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Arrange apple in rows over dough. In small bowl combine remaining 1/2 cup sugar with cinnamon; sprinkle over apples. Rub reserved dough between hands to make crumbs over apples. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 – 40 min. Makes 16 servings.
