My husband says he married me for my apple pie, but this recipe is much quicker to make. It's delicious by itself or topped with ice cream.

"This recipe was quick to prep. I had all of the ingredients on hand. I used a variety of apples that I had and it tasted great. In the future to maybe add a little more flavor, I'd toss the apples in a cinnamon and sugar mixture then top with crumb topping."

"I used two bags of presliced and peeled apples and doubled the rest of the ingredients. This was really good and easy to make. Since I doubled the recipe it did take an hour and a half to cook. Will make again."

"This is very quick to throw together and cook. I made this with Granny Smith and Fuji apples the first time but thought it was too tart so I tried Gala apples. Much better, not too tart and not too sweet. This is great with some vanilla ice cream."

"I have a great big granny smith apple tree in my backyard. I LOVE tart apples! So I just walked outside, plucked a few of the apples and tried this easy apple crisp! It was an absolute hit with the Sunday dinner crew! I didn't tell them how easy it was!"

"I used Granny Smith apples, and while my family liked this I was a bit disappointed. There was not enough crisp to sweeten the tart apples. I like the concept, but next time I think I will make a crumb style pie topper."
