Made this tonight, I cut the recipe in half because I only had 5 cups of apples. It wasn't mentioned what size of pan to use so I used a 8 X 12 class dish, which was fine but I should have stuck with the original amount of ingredients for the topping. Other than that, it was just what I was looking for in taste. I would definitely make this again. Read More

Not enough fruit for topping, next time I would double the fruit. I cut sugar in 1/2 for both and it was still plenty sweet!!! Read More

I tend to reduce the sugar in most recipes and I felt this recipe definitely needed it. The fist time I made this crisp I reduced the sugar in the topping to 1 1/2 cups and it was still good. The second time I reduced the sugar to 1 cup and it was perfect! I have gotten rave reviews for this crisp either way and thanks for sharing! Read More

This apple crisp was awesome. Not difficult to make. I liked the addition of the oatmeal in this recipe compared to others I have used in the past. Paula R. Read More

This recipe results in an overwhelmingly sweet apple crisp. I followed the directions exactly. It didn’t say to peel the apples, so I didn’t. The peel helped remind us this dessert contained apples! The brown sugar can be cut way down here. I would change this recipe and add no more than two tablespoons to the apples, and no more than 3/4 cup to the topping…I would also reduce the rest of the topping ingredients across the board by half. The apple to topping ratio is way off. I think with these changes this recipe has potential. (I would also suggest peeling the apples if it’s your preference) Read More
