I cannot describe how wonderful this was. why hasn't anyone tried this recipe!!! I made one large crisp, and it was done in 1 hour 5 minutes. Try this you won't regret it. Thanks Mean Chef!
I honestly did not enjoy this recipe, and I made it exactly as written. The only thing I could taste in the topping was flour. It really needed more brown sugar to make it sweeter and hide the flour taste. Even with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, it was only mediocre.
I joined this site just to review this recipe! I've been wanting to try apple crisp for a while and all the recipes I've come across haven't appealed to me...I see 5 star recipes calling for oats and while I like eating oatmeal, can't imagine it tasting good baked with apples! This came up as #6 when googling apple crisp. I love the easy directions and decided to give it a try. I used 4 cups gala apples, 1 stick land-o-lakes butter, and chopped walnuts because that's what I had. I can't explain how good this was!! So delicious! This is the only apple crisp recipe I will ever use! Next time I will use 6 cups apples, with 4 cups I had more topping than apples with each bite. But still soo good!
I just used the crisp topping and put it on a can of pie filling apples. I baked it for 60 minutes and it was absolutely delicious! Thanks to carolinafan and to Mean Chef. Carole in Orlando
very simple and easy. i liked this recipe b/c i wanted to make a smaller crisp than the recipes that usually call for a 9x13 pan. baked it in a pretty pie pan and everyone was impressed.
This was super easy and the texture of the apples turned out perfect - I used 4 granny smith and 2 honeycrisp. I'm just amazed by how little effort it took for a great result! I tweaked the spices a little, using 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg, and a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Whipped cream didn't hurt either!
I scaled the recipe back to 2 servings reducing the sugar and butter a tad, but other than that stuck to your recipe and loved it! I never thought something so simple could taste so special! Yummy!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, carolinafan!

This is a super recipe. I used crushed almonds and it gave really good texture. My husband said it is the best he ever had. How bad can sugar and butter be?
Hmmmm, After the previous reviews, I hesitate to write mine. I did not have good luck with mine. Maybe the apples were not juicy enough, I used Cortlands. The crisp didn't get all that crisp, but we still ate it and it wasn't the worst I've had
