Lennie, Your recipe for Apple Brown Lennie is delicious! It is so very close to my own recipe for Apple Crisp that I simply had to give it 5 stars! I used the food processor as I do in my own recipe to slice the apples which makes them nice an thin. Otherwise, I made it exactly according to your directions and baked 1 hour! It smelled so good I couldn't wait for after supper. So I had it as a mid-day snack!
