Applescotch Crisp Recipe

Meet the Cook: Just as soon as the first crop of apples is off the trees, I fix this crisp. Thanks to the butterscotch pudding, it's moist and sweet. It's popular at potlucks, and it's a nice snack. In fact, I'm reluctant to make it in the evening - I'm afraid someone will sneak down to the refrigerator at midnight and claim it! My husband and I have four children, ranging in age from 21 to 8. -Elaine Nicholl, Nottingham, Pennsylvania

"This was a quick and easy recipe, however I found the topping to be a bit bland and I did not taste the butterscotch. I will try it again with less flour in the topping, and I will mix about a teaspoon of cinnamon in the brown sugar/milk/water mixture."

"I've made this for years in a pie shell. It's always a delicious hit! Occasionally I'll add some pecan pieces to the topping. Yum!"

"This is a great recipe. I've been making it since 1974. I discovered it on a can of Del Monte peaches. The only difference is the liquid. My recipe uses 3/4 cup reserved juices instead of milk and water for the filling."
