I put a couple tablespoons of flour over the bottom of the crust, then peel, core, and slice up the apples, then pour about 1/2 to 3/4 cups of sugar over the apples, sprinkle cinnamon, and maybe another teaspoon or so of flour. Some people also put some dots of butter over. The only thing is I use a top crust or even a lattice crust on top which still needs a second crust. If you have only one crust, and only 3-4 apples, a tart might be a better idea. A little flour on the bottom, mound the apples in the middle, sugar, cinnamon, then pull the sides of the crust up and over gently so that the outer part of the apples are covered by crust. It is OK for the middle to not be covered. Bake 400 degrees roughly 50 minutes until nicely browned. watch it after the first 30 minutes.
