Easy and soooo good. I always get rave reviews when I make this dish. Don't slice the apples too thin though or they end up too mushy. Read More

I'm not giving this recipe a terrible rating because I'm sure I must've done something wrong to get the results I did. Okay flavor, really BAD presentation. I tried to about double everything - put the apples in the orange juice as I was slicing them so they wouldn't brown. Either I used too much orange juice (I only used a little over 1/3 cup) or having the apples in it caused them to release water while cooking because when I pulled this out of the oven it was SWIMMING in buttery water. I kid you not - rocking the pan from side to side make it look like the apples were floating on top of water. The topping had all melted and pretty much disintegrated in the water and it was just . . . ugly. And REALLY REALLY sweet. I even drained the watery part and just gave husband the apples and ice cream and he only ate about three bites. I'll probably try a different recipe next time since I couldn't make this one work. Sorry. :( Read More

super delicious. This tastes mighty fine. And so easy to make too. (ps substitute some brown sugar for the white and it will taste even better.) Still the best recipie around! Read More

EXCELLENT!!! i used a Cuisinart to slice those apples simply uniform and thin... it also whips up the crumbly topping nicely. I used 1/2 C brown sugar and 1/4 white. I added 1/2 t vanilla to the oj before pouring it over apples SO EASY SO GOOD!!! I'll make it again... Read More

This recipe was a last minute find and what a find! I made it for my church choir's annual "Welcome Back From Summer Break" picnic and it received many, many compliments. To those of you who advised doing the sugar as 1/2 white and 1/2 brown, thanks! The advise was well taken. Like many here, I also doubled the recipe and added a cup of raisins to the apple mixture (I like raisins!). The addition made for a very flavorful touch. Thanks for the recipe, Barbara! It is definetly going into the Recipe Box! -MEB Read More

I wanted to try a recipe for an antique "brown betty" baking dish I got for a gift. This is quite good. I made it twice. Both times using half brown sugar. The second time I added 1/8 tsp. clove as I like the spice. A hit both times. I like serving it with half and half. It adds the dairy element without the extra sugar. Thanks for this! Read More
