"This is one of the best apple crisp recipes I have tried. I did cut back the sugars by half and will cut back more, next time I make it, as I still found it sweet. I did add some nutmeg and will add more cinnamon next time."

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"I would recommend cooking it an additional 20-25 minutes. I really liked my apples soft like apple pie and the topping more caramelized. It was fantastic!"

"I liked this recipe, but I thought there was way too much sugar involved! I cut (both) the brown & the white sugars in half, and the final result was exceptionally delicious. I made real whipped cream, to which I added some cinnamon while whipping it. Yummy...."

"Excellent, thanks for sharing. My girlfriend liked it and she's pretty finicky. Great big ole spoon of Coolwhip was the only improvement here. Thanks again."
