Great recipe and easy to make. Thanks Eleanor. I marked it down one star because I can't imagine an apple recipe without cinnamon, which I added (a couple of teaspoons). I also added fresh ground cloves and doubled the oats as some have suggested. Works well with half Splenda and half brown sugar, too. I've also added a few cranberries for color and taste sometimes. Always to rave reviews. Read More

Sorry but I just didn't like it. The topping was too compact - almost like a shell. I like more of a crumble. The fruit was too sweet. My teeth were aching from the syrup. I used a combo of Gala and Granny smith. Served it at a family dinner. Hubby likes it - he has a wicked sweet tooth tho. Read More

This is a really good crisp. Granny Smith's worked well for me. I doubled the amount of rolled oats since my boys like that part the best and it was just great!! Read More

Yum! Comforting and so, so good! I used Cortland and Crispin apples 'cause that's what I had on hand, and left the skins on. I followed suggestions and added 1/2 c. more oats, about 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. cloves, used less butter, and added 1/2 bag thawed cranberries. Wow. The sweet/tart combination was just right, not to mention the added health benefits of the nuts, cranberries and less butter (didn't miss it even with the added oats). I'll make this again--thank you, Eleanor, for posting this recipe and to all who made suggestions! Read More

Absolutely delicious. I missplaced my own recipe for Apple Crisp so I had to look one up. This is by far the best that I have had!! I doubled the rolled oats because we all LOVE that part and added 1 teaspoon cinnamon. I will use this always. Read More

I've tried a couple apple crisp recipes lately and this one is a definate winner. I added a little ground cloves and cinnamon also added currants and dried cranberries to the crust and it's just delicious! Me and my boyfriend made it for breakfast and by early afternoon it was gone. I plan to make another this weekend and perhaps try wheat flour. Read More

After layering the apples I tossed in a half tsp. of cinnamon a little white sugar and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla. I served it with vanilla ice cream and for someone who claims they usually don't like dessert my husband ate every drop. Read More

Delicious apple crisp especially with Macintosh apples. I added an exta 1/4 C of brown sugar and rolled oats for a little extra topping and used pecans instead of walnuts. Still excellent! Read More

Better than apple pie by far! I shared this recipe with a friend and it is a hit with her too! I used green and red apples and the tartness and sweetness was a great compliment especially with the spices and oats. Read More
