"I am not a dessert fan, but made this for my husband who is. I cut the recipe in half which was very wise of me...he almost ate it all, hence the 5 stars!!!"

"Too sweet. Prefer a more traditional Apple crisp with a simple crumb topping. Made it for a second time tonight and confirmed the sweetness and twice the baking time is a good reason to skip it. However, if you are feeding people with a serious sweet tooth, this is great for you."

"Made it as written and used Granny Smith Apples. Just the right amount of topping and a good amount of apple filling. Will make it again."

"Absolutely delicous! It was a hit with everyone. I made it as the the recipe stated and it was great. We liked the chewy, crispy topping but would have liked more of it. I will double that part when I make it again."

"Delicious;!! I used Granny Smith apples and doubled the recipe. Made for group of 16 and everyone loved it! Put topping in bottom as suggested, did not count/measure apples, just kept piling them up till they filled my Pyrex dish (9 x 13) and put remainder of topping, as best I could, on top before pouring liquid over. Put pan or foil under dish since it will probably bubble over in oven. Served with vanilla ice cream, but excellent without!"

"I tried this using less sugar and more apples. Different than any recipe I've used in the past.

Turned out fabulous. This is the only way I will ever make it from now on. I'm sure other types of fruit would be good, also! Thanks so much. 10*'s here!"
