Absolutely wonderful in every way. Extremely easy to make and so very tasty. We loved the crumb crust and topping. I made it in a glass flan pan, and baked in the toaster oven. Gerry, you have some of the best recipes, and this one is right up there too. Thank you.

I love apple desserts and this one is no different. It tastes sweet and sugary cookie-ish with apple pie thrown in. I'm not sure it's easier than apple pie with refridgerated pie crusts out there, but I don't care, it was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and it game out great. Perfect with ice cream, FYI.

I LOVE this recipe! So tasty. It's apple pie, but with less complicated crust. :) I used brown sugar for the crust, because I love the combination of brown sugar with apples, and I used a generous teaspoon of cinnamon (I think I'll add some to the topping next time). I also sprinkled some nutmeg into the apples for some extra spice. I made this recipe with early Transparent apples, so I didn't feel the need to cut down on the sugar. The apples still had a nice tang to them, though admittedly, Transparents are rather sour. Awesome, awesome, awesome recipe. I'll make this instead of apple crisp from now on, and okay, probably in place of a full blown pie, because I don't have the patience to do crusts, and I refuse to buy them. Thanks for sharing! I'm going to try this with peaches next. :)

This was really good. I don't normally like apple pie, but this one was good. I did change things a bit, cause I am allergic to . Not to mention I just tend to cook that way. My 4 kids loved this stuff, first time I've ever had them all beg for more of this type of dessert. I made a double batch. For the crumb crust I did half white and half brown sugar. I used real butter since we like that better, and I added about 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt. (Sorry, I didn't actually measure...I dumped.) For the filling I used the apples, white sugar, and I added a bit of brown sugar to give it a bit of flavor, and then I used some vanilla and lemon juice. We will be using this recipe again. Thank you!

Delicious!!! I cut the sugar back to about 1/3 cup, just trying to keep the calories down, and I added about 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice because I was afraid my apples weren't the freshest. This was very quick, easy and delicious! OH, and I also turned the heat up to 375 for the last 5 minutes to get a nice golden brown top. Thanks! Great recipe!

This is truly a wonderful recipe. Takes the humble apple crumble to the next level! I doubled the amounts to make it in a 9x13 inch pan. I used less sugar for the filling than called for, it was perfect for us. And, I used a mixture of white and cane sugar for the crumble mixture. I sprinkled some extra cinnamon and grated nutmeg on top of the crumble before baking. Served it with custard (for DH) and vanilla ice cream (for me and DD!). Thank you so much, Gerry, for sharing another one of your fabulous recipes, this one is also a keeper that I will be making it often.

Very yummy! I chose this recipe cause my daughter is allergic to eggs and most other pie recipes have eggs. this was very easy to throw together. i did add some nutmeg and vanilla to the filling, i also used half white/half brown sugar in the crust. topped with a little cool whip. will definitely make again.

Quick and easy fruit dessert which everyone enjoyed. My family of five ate the entire dish for dessert, so next time I'll double to get leftovers. Baked per directions in the recipe which worked just fine, will try the higher temperature version, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
