MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2016

"Love this! It's my go-to apple crisp recipe. I do also cut down on the sugars and go heavy on the apples and it is delicious. Love the way the crust/topping gets a little chewy/crispy. Sometimes I double the recipe in a 13x9 for company."

"Very very sweet, even with cutting the sugars in half."

"I thought it was amazing and will definitely make it again. I cut the whole recipe in half because I made it for just two people. I will probably cut back on some of the sugar also."

"This was an awesome apple crisp, followed suggestions and cut both sugars in half. Loved the bottom crust !"

MY REVIEW

"Even though I gave this recipe 5 stars, I think there is WAY too much sweetness with 2 cups of sugars. Fantastic recipe and this is definitely a keeper. I will just decrease the amount of both white and brown sugar the next time!"
