This is a very simple recipe which turns out great! I tweaked the recipe just a little, using granny smith and macintosh apples. I also mixed a pinch of nutmeg, about 1 tsp of cinnamon, and about 1/2 tsp of vanilla in with apples before putting the crumb topping on. Turned out wonderful, even better with ice cream. Read More

This recipe was a total disappointment. I can't believe it had so many 5 star reviews. I served it for a family gathering and politely no one commented on it. The cinnamon was too strong- 1 TB is way too much and I like spicy. I would never make this again. Read More

I have made dozens of apple pies and apple crisps using different recipies - this is hands down the BEST I have tried. Lots of crispy, sweet (but not too sweet)and yummy topping. I added 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts, and it added a great crunch, but not necessary. So quick and easy to make too. Read More

Excellent recipe...a nice alternative to time-consuming apple pie! So easy!! Like some other reviewers, I baked this in a 9x9 pan and it fit perfectly. I put the last 1 tblsp cinnamon on top of the apples instead of on top of the crust. I sprinkled 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/4 cup brown sugar on top of the apples also. Came out delicious! Thanks.

Easy and very yummy! I replaced some white sugar with brown sugar. Apples were a little mushier than I like so next time I will probably only bake for 40-45 minutes. Read More

Was very easy to make. I followed some other reviewers and used half a cup brown sugar half cup of white and a little vanilla. I wasn't so sure about all the butter but it turned out great. Both my husband and my daughter loved it. Read More

This recipe was super simple and super delicious! My kids 7 and 10 like to help me in the kitchen and this is simple enough that we whip it up in a flash and then all stand around the oven waiting for it to come out. It fills the house with such a wonderful aroma that family and guests always comment! We do add an apple or two more but otherwise it's great as is. Read More

This apple crisp is addicting with the changes I made: I sliced the apples very thin and tossed them in a few splashes of lemon juice 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon sugar before putting them in the baking dish. Then I put half of the butter on the apples then the other half on the crisp topping and also added 1/4 tsp vanilla extract to the topping. I baked it for 50 minutes and it turned out perfect I will definitely make this again! Read More

Easy & yummy, but I'm not sure this is the "perfect" apple crisp...I am going to test out a few more this fall before I decide. I added some brown sugar before the topping, and at 45 min it was plenty done. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Leftovers were almost as good as fresh. Read More
