Too sweet, apples turned to mush and the topping was rock hard.
No one cared for it

This smells delicious while baking and tastes really good. I made it gluten free by using a rice flour mix (white rice flour & half the amount of tapioca starch, no gum) I used granny smith apples, dark brown sugar on top of the apples and white sugar in the crust, I reduced both by about half along with the butter like another reviewer. Doing that made the batter unable to be poured, but I spooned it on top and it worked out fine. I chose just to use cinnamon as I felt, though I love cardamom, I wouldn't in this. I would make this again and would like to try with more butter than I did but keep the sugar at about half. Made for Sweet Traditions Tag Game - Spring 2010.
