Reviews for Mom's Cinnamon-Apple Crisp
"This recipe or a version of it, has been in our family for years. Only kind I like. An easier step to cutting the butter in is to just melt it and pour over the top of the flour mix after it is spread over the apples, making sure to get the edges. Don't even have to pre-stir the egg, just drop in flour mixture and stir. Yum! Have never seen this recipe posted anywhere before. Nice to see it out there."
"Awesome, My boyfriend loved it!! Super easy to make and oh so yummy. Made it exact to the directions stated."
"Made this exactly as written and it came out great! Nice, quick dessert recipe to make on a weeknight, and perfect to use up some of those fresh apples from the apple orchard!"
"This is a very nice go to quick recipe. I did use more apples and I precooked them for a few minutes before completing the recipe. I cut back on the butter and I made just 1/2 of the recipe. Perfect for 2 *Janie"

"I made this tonight. It was amazing! My son helped make it and he actually ate it and loved it!! He's 4 and is a very picky eater!"
"Added additional cinnamon to apples as well as topping. Vanilla bean ice cream and Carmel topping when serving...yum!"
"Délicieux. Tout le monde a adoré."
"This was easy to make and soooo delicious!"
"I've never really had a crisp that did not contain oats in the topping. This topping was not like a biscuit cobbler, but was somewhat crumbly. I used Granny Smith and it was really good!"
