  3. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a large saucepan with the 3 cups of water/apple juice. Stir almost constantly while cooking on medium high heat until the mixture thickens and begins to bubble.

  7. Topping: Mix together flour, sugar and butter until evenly distributed and crumbly in texture. Sprinkle over apples.
  8. Put pie in the oven on a lined tray to catch the juices that may spill over. Bake 45 minutes. Refrigerate.
