Really good...I had no idea how much 3-1/2 lbs. apples meant in cups so I used 5 very large apples which worked out fine. The addition of maple syrup to the crispy crust is a great idea. Read More

I followed the recipe as is except for subbing pecans for walnuts and we did not care for this at all. The topping was very "flour-y" dry and bland not very sweet. I made this for my husband and brother-in-law who both love apple crisp and honestly it was the worst we've ever had. I've made tons of apple crisp before and really hoped to like this recipe for something new. It's possible I messed something up but apple crisp is pretty foolproof I think. Read More

This is a delicious dessert. I made it for my friends and they loved it. I took the suggestion of someone else who tried this recipe and used pecans instead of walnuts (just preference) and it tasted great. I also sprinkled cinnamon over the apples and top layer and it was a great touch to an already sweet treat. Read More

Great receipe. We finished it right off and was asked to make more right away so I cut down the receipe to fit the four apples I had left. Also the second time I added the oatmeal crust to the bottom as well as the top. I will make this every weekend for the rest of fall. Read More

I was looking for an apple crisp recipe similar to what I had growing up but this wasn't it. It was good though just not what I was looking for. This tasted just like oatmeal cookies with apples -- a great combination. I think it would be good with raisins in it! Read More
