Made this recipe and it came out fantastic, everything i bake usually fails. After reading the comments below i made sure to leave the butter and eggs to come to room temp. I even stuck the butter in the microwave so it was absolutely melted; i think that help with making sure i had enough liquid. I folded in one cup of flour really well, then added the other cup. It was like a cake batter, had to work with it a bit to spread on top but definitely doable! And worth it!!!

I made one-half recipe. I found the topping to be a little too crisp ... almost like a hard cookie. Maybe I did something wrong. It was good though. I may try again.

I used yellow delicious apples, and 3/4 cup of truvia brown sugar replacement, and it was a fabulous tasting dessert for my wife and i. I am type 1 diabetic for 49 yrs. So im constantly searching for new great desserts we can enjoy without altering my insulin regimen too much, and this was again absolutly delicious!!!! It required 5 extra units of humalog insulin to counteract the dessert and a big scoop of whipped topping.

I was very disappointed inn this. It sounded good and the reviews were good. It was dry and not very sweet. I used gala Apple's so they should have been sweet enough. I'm mad I wasted all the ingredients. I won't be making this again

This is absolutely delicious! I used pecans because my walnuts weren't as fresh as they could be, and I can't wait to try it with walnuts. I used a cake decorating spatula to spread the batter, and it worked perfectly. This one is a keeper!

This recipe is so easy and it spread just fine. I used room temp butter and eggs. The consistency of the batter is like chocolate chip cookie dough. I did switch out the walnuts for pecans and I served with pecan praline ice cream.....I also used red delicious apples instead of granny smith as I had them from a friend who has a tree....This is one of the most delicious apple recipes I have ever made!!!! thanks

Delicious dessert especially during apple season. The batter is a bit difficult to "spread" but with a little patience it works well. You want to make sure the butter is really soft and the eggs are at room temperature. If you add cold eggs it will stiffen the butter back up making it more difficult to mix and spread.

I just finished making this wonderful dessert and I got the thumbs up from all my family. I didn't use Granny Apples because all I had were 6 Delicious apples about to turn; and I didn't use all purpose flour because after the Christmas season I was all out so I used All Purpose Rice Flour. Making the substitutions out of necessity didn't seem to matter, it came out delicious anyway. I can't wait to make it again using the prescribed ingredients because I know it will be even more delicious due the tangy taste of the Granny Apples. I give this recipe 5 stars!
