I thought this recipe was too sweet also and a little dry. I cut down on the white sugar, only used a 3rd cup and I added a few more apples to add a little more liquid.
It was way too sweet. I could taste the brown sugar. May try again, but will cut down on both the white and brown sugars.
This was good except it was hard getting the bottom crust out when cutting and serving. The next time I make this, I will cut the topping in half and only put in on the top of the apples. I will also cut down on the sugars as someone else did.
Aside from being way too sweet, I thought it was good. Will make again, and just cut down on the oatmeal and brown sugar.
We really liked this recipe. The first time I followed it exactly and it turned out great. Recently I had some pears that I needed to do something with so I pulled this recipe out again. This time I used a 9 x 13 dish; didn't use any of the crumbles for a crust; all crumbles went on top; and used 8 to 10 pears. The results were just as good and probably saved a few calories!
