Absolutely delicious! I will use this recipe from now on. For years, I had been trying to cut back on the butter - and it never "crisped up" to a delicious, crumbly topping. Well, this recipe did, and I will use it from now on. I added nuts to half of it in the pan, omitted the lemon (since I was using granny smith apples,) and didn't measure the apples - just be sure to use lots, because they cook WAY down. Can't wait to make more!

A delicious and very easy dessert! I was lazy, so I threw the dry ingredients in my food processor to mix then blend in the butter. It makes the topping done in a matter of seconds without putting a cramp in my wrist (as a pianist, that's a good thing). I also mixed the apples, sugar, lemon juice, and additional cinnamon to coat evenly before placing in baking dish. It was a big hit with my husband and 2 boys! This recipe is a keeper!

This was good but not great as I was hoping for. I followed the recipe exactly. I was hoping for a thicker, sweeter, buttery-tasting topping with cinnamony apples. THe topping was good, but the oats tasted odd. Maybe I should have used instant oats? I think next time I will add more butter, instant oats, yellow cake mix instead of flour, and add cinnamon and brown sugar instead of white sugar to the apples and use some apple pie spice in the topping mixture.

Whoa! I impressed myself on this one, not to toot my horn or anything (beep beep). No in all seriousness though i think a magic elf followed me home from the tree i borrowed these apples from and whispered some magic words just before the oven door closed. This was way too easy and super delicious(dare i say epic?). Okay lets all make a pact that we just won't tell anyone else how easy this really is to make. When you're done with this recipe burn your computer and bask in the glory that is... Apple Crisp

This turned out great. I looked at quite a few other apple crisp and apple cobbler recipes before deciding that this one had just what I needed. I wanted the health advantages of oatmeal and also wanted to use up a lemon. I used several Gala apples and 2 Granny Smiths, and added some chopped walnuts. Just perfect for a chilly fall evening dinner with family.

Wasn't a huge fan of this. We had to bake it an additional 15 minutes or so to get the apples soft (they were sliced about 1/4 inch thick at most.) The flavor was good, but the top didn't get crispy at all. It seemed to come out the same way it went in (texture wise) it was just a little browner. It didn't seem crispy and didn't have much of a crunch.
