Everything about this dessert makes it the top request for family gatherings. Its oat crust reminds me of a cookie, and the tart apple filling just can't be beat during harvest time. —Brenda DuFresne, Midland, Michigan

"This pie was easy to prepare. The no roll crust and topping is delicious. As I was making this pie, I noticed it did not call for any cinnamon. After reading several other reviews, I decided to add some cinnamon and nutmeg to the filling. I would also reserve more like 1 1/2 cups of the crust mixture for the topping."

"I would have given this 5 stars, however, it definitely lacks cinnamon and nutmeg! I should have read the reviews before I made it. I think with those additions, this would be a 10 star pie! LOVE the crust! I love that it adds more texture and flavor vs a standard crust. I might even add some finely chopped walnuts or pecans to the streusel topping!"

"made exactly as set out in recipe except added one teaspoon of cinnamon to filling. prep was easy and straight forward. enjoyed the pie filling but did not like the crust. the taste of butter was overwhelming. in the future I may prepare standard scratch pie crust with this filling."

"Good pie recipe but I really loved the crust. Will use this to make other types of pie instead of the regular graham cracker crust."

"I made this today...not hard to make at all versus making pie crust from scratch. This pie was very good! I added cinnamon also as I read in the reviews...goes good with apple pie! Thank you for sharing! This recipe is a keeper :)"
