"My husband and I loved this recipe. I too omitted the wheat bran (didn't have any), used some fresh cranberries in addition to cranberry sance called for. I left the peel on the apples but next time I would peel the apples. It's wonderful and very easy. Can't wait to make it again!"

"This was very tasty. Next time I would peel the apples. Served to company and they really liked it and asked for the recipe. I used Golden Delicious apples and doubled the topping. This is going into the recipe box. I also served it with vanilla ice cream. Easy to do. I would have given five stars but didn't care for the apple peels."

"Recipe was very tasty. I used brown sugar substitute in the crumb topping since there is a diabetic in my household. I would definitely peel the apples next time."

"RE: grams of sugar... A lesson from my son who has Type 1 diabetes: the carb count is more important than a separate sugar count since sugar accounts for most if not all of, the carbs."

"Love it!!! It is so simple to make and tastes so good. It is tart and not too sweet. Everyone that tastes it wants the recipe. The only thing I changed was I used Splenda brown sugar and added chopped pecans in the topping."
