Really good. But we found it too sweet. I also added oats. I needed it done sooner, so I put it in the microwave first for 4 min on high to soften the apples, then I browned it at 450* in the oven for about 10 min. Everyone enjoyed it despite being sweeter than we are used to.

This recipe was easy and delicious! I loved the addition of peanut butter, and mixed with the cinnamon and brown sugar it was the perfect flavor combination. I added 3/4 C. of oats to give it more texture, and I reduced the flour slightly to compensate for the oats. It turned out perfect, and I will be making this again!

This quick and easy apple crisp was yummy! I was intrigued by the addition of the peanut butter, and enjoyed the subtle, delicious flavor that it added to this crisp. I used Braeburn apples instead of tart apples, as they are my favorite apples to bake with. Also, I had to add about 10 - 15 minutes to the baking time for the apples to get tender. I served this warm with vanilla bean ice cream...yum! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. It is definitely a keeper!
