This was wonderful. My son had requested apple crisp for Thanksgiving, but I didn't have enough apples for both it and the apple pie. Instead, I made it over the weekend while the guys were out deer hunting. I used Granny Smith (my favorite baking apple) and doubled the recipe. It was a huge hit when the guys got back in and was gone in just over 24 hours. Thanks for posting Ellie!

Delicious! This was a simple, easy to follow recipe. Easy to whip up and it baked while we were eating supper. I served this with vanilla ice cream and there was not a single drop leftover! Thanks for posting this!
