    A good, simple recipe for apple crisp. It has a good cinnamon flavor, and it is not too sweet.

    Made this yesterday to take as dessert for a dinner we had been invited to. Fantastic! I did double all the ingredients (used a 9x13" baking dish) for a crowd. Increased the baking time to 40-45 minutes. This recipe for apple crisp got rave reviews.
