    I had to take a second look at this recipe because I thought I made a mistake. Why does the recipe list 1/2 tsp cardamom and then 1/4 tsp cardamom? In the directions it does not mention using it two ways. So what is the right amount to use? I think it sounds delicious and I would really like to make it.

    Delicious recipe. A real crowd pleaser. I used plain whipped cream but I'm sure it would be even better with the almond cream.

    Made this for dessert today. Very good. I didn't have the cream so had it plain. I did not use the slow cooker.... Just baked it in the oven. I should have covered the top with foil, but still enjoyed to . I made no changes to the recipe. Will make this again.

    This is the best apple crisp I've ever tasted - even better than my moms.
