Meet the Cook: Just as soon as the first crop of apples is off the trees, I fix this crisp. Thanks to the butterscotch pudding, it's moist and sweet. It's popular at potlucks, and it's a nice snack. In fact, I'm reluctant to make it in the evening - I'm afraid someone will sneak down to the refrigerator at midnight and claim it!
My husband and I have four children, ranging in age from 21 to 8.

There's no tastier way to get all the good nutrition of oats—including B vitamins and iron—than a serving of this sweet, tasty crunch. It doesn't get soggy like some crunches do.—Frances Poste, Wall, South Dakota
