Reviews for Nutty Apple Streusel Dessert
"I agree with TeresaWitt about the texture - and honestly, even the apple part had a fairy odd texture when it was finished (I think due to the eggs). My husband said it was "ok." I thought it deserved more of an "I can eat it, but..." I think I would just advise that if anyone in your household is texture-sensitive (you know who you are), do something different - if not, go for it. The FLAVOR itself was good!!"
"Why the egg?"
"We LOVE this recipe. The smell is great and it is not overly sweet :) We enjoy this in about 2 - 2 1/2 hours from the crock pot."
"Good flavor, but the almonds give it a strange texture. I think it might be better with oats."
"I make this for Thanksgiving instead of an apple pie. My family LOVES it."
"Delicious! Tastes great served with a scoop if icecream! Defiantly one to keep and make each fall!"
"This one is worth the preparation time. It's very good! I had 2 helpings the first time I tried it. Next time I make it I'll be sure to have vanilla ice cream on hand! -Lori in WI."
