Reviews for Mom's Apple Crisp
"I didn't pour the full cup of water over the top as I thought it might be to much. Used about 1/2 cup. Came out great."
"Made this for a luncheon and it got all raves. It was autumn at the time, so I used apple cider for half of the water, worked perfectly."
"My family loved this it turned out great how ever I would put a pan under it it boiled over and set my smoke alarms off. I had to turn it off clean the oven then put it back in and finish cooking it. How ever my family loved it and it was gone fast."
"I modified the recipe using enough apples for a 9x13 pan. I increased he topping by one half. It was enough to cover. Very good!"
"Wonderful flavor. I don't like tart apples so I used Golden Delicious apples. I used the 1/4 cup of sugar in the apples, but only used 1/2 cup of sugar in the topping. This is my favorite apple crisp recipe."
