Everything about this dessert (but especially its dutch apple pie topping!) makes it the number 1 request for family gatherings. Its oat crust reminds me of a cookie, and the tart apple filling just can't be beat during harvest time. —Brenda DuFresne, Midland, Michigan

"Hubby was craving apple pie and I ran across this in my August/September Simple & Delicious mag. Looked easy and with few ingredients. The only thing we needed was the apples. Got some Granny Smiths and followed the recipe except for adding some cinnamon to the apple mixture. I couldn't figure out why that was left out of the original recipe. Anyway, it came out TERRIFIC! Oh so tasty and the crust is wonderful. Perfect recipe! I've already printed and saved it and it is now my go-to recipe. Hubby absolutely LOVED it and he's picky about his apple pie. LOL! Thanks Brenda DuFrense for sending it in."

"This was so easy - love the preparation technique for the crust and topping! I thought it needed some spice so next time I made it I added in 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon to the flour mixture. I also added 1/2 cup chopped nuts (typically peans or walnuts), and I thought this provided some nice crunch. I will definitely make this pie again!"

"This pie was easy to prepare. The no roll crust and topping is delicious. As I was making this pie, I noticed it did not call for any cinnamon. After reading several other reviews, I decided to add some cinnamon and nutmeg to the filling. I would also reserve more like 1 1/2 cups of the crust mixture for the topping."

"I would have given this 5 stars, however, it definitely lacks cinnamon and nutmeg! I should have read the reviews before I made it. I think with those additions, this would be a 10 star pie! LOVE the crust! I love that it adds more texture and flavor vs a standard crust. I might even add some finely chopped walnuts or pecans to the streusel topping!"

"made exactly as set out in recipe except added one teaspoon of cinnamon to filling. prep was easy and straight forward. enjoyed the pie filling but did not like the crust. the taste of butter was overwhelming. in the future I may prepare standard scratch pie crust with this filling."

"Good pie recipe but I really loved the crust. Will use this to make other types of pie instead of the regular graham cracker crust."

"I made this today...not hard to make at all versus making pie crust from scratch. This pie was very good! I added cinnamon also as I read in the reviews...goes good with apple pie! Thank you for sharing! This recipe is a keeper :)"
