"5 Stars!

Didn't have any apples on hand so used applesauce instead. Have also used canned apple pie filling. Nice and moist every time!
I've added crushed cookies crumbs to the nut topping as well!"

"This was a very easy recipe to make. The only thing I did different was I doubled the brown sugar and pecans. I wanted more on the top. We will make this again."
