Reviews for Two-Layered Apple Crisp
"I'm not sure why some reviewer said it was dry; this was nice and moist with a crisp topping. If anything, I think I will add more apples next time, because I thought the sugar was overpowering, but everyone else who ate it loved it as is. Will make again. :)"
"If you can't make apple pie, try this recipe, it's quick and easy and tastes like the best apple pie you ever tried."
"I pulled it from the oven a scoch early so I could reheat it later to serve, it was perfectly moist and raved about by all. I topped with vanilla icecream. Thumbs up!"
"I made this for our Christmas day dessert, and we loved it! We did NOT find it to be dry. I used the recommended amount of apples (Golden Delicious), and they created a yummy juice just like in apple pie. I love the addition of the bottom crust -- that makes it extra-special. And I served it warm with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce -- it was decadent! I'm definitely making this one again!"
"I served this for dessert on Christmas day, and we loved it! We did NOT find it to be too dry. I used the amount of apples called for, and they made a deliciously rich sauce, just like in an apple pie. The bottom crust is a real tasty addition to the average apple crisp recipe. We enjoyed it warm with ice cream and caramel topping, and it was decadent! Definitely making this one again!"
