Apple Brown Betty

Apple Brown Betty 3 cups sliced apples (I don't pare them)
1 1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons melted butter
3/4 cup water, hot or cold
Mix apples, 1 cup bread crumbs, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Place in buttered baking dish and pour water over top.  Top with remaining crumbs and pour melted butter over top.  Bake at 350°F  30-45 minutes.  (I test for tenderness with a fork after about 40 minutes).  Serve hot or cold with hard sauce or scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Serves 6.
Hard Sauce
1/3 cup butter
1 cup confectioner's sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cream
Cream butter.  Beat in sugar gradually until fluffy.  Add flavoring and cream.  Chill until firm (hence the term 'hard' sauce).
