This is the best appla crisp I have ever had. I like it best warm with a SMALL amount of cream. It doesn't get any better!

Bev, I used the filling portion of your recipe, with my own, make ahead topping. I give the filling FIVE STARS! Had I made the entire recipe, I would have given actual stars. Great combo of apples and spices.

This is the most wonderful recipe for apple crisp that we have ever tasted. Even my picky eaters loved it. I even used this recipe to make dutch apple pie and I received many compliments.
