Cut chilled margarine into thin slices and add to flour. (TIP:) run your hands from your wrists in cold water until well chilled. This makes rubbing fat into flour easier to do.)
using fingertips mix margarine into flour so fat is almost invisible and flour looks like breadcrumbs.
Add splenda to mix and lightly toss sugar into mix. you don't want sugar sticking to flour & fat mix.
Drain water from apples & pack them into a 9 x 13 baking dish. sprinkle about 1 OZ Splenda over apples and add 3 TBS water to pan.
Tip crumble mix on top of apples until apple pieces are covered.
Using a fork rough-up crumble mix.
