I have had this recipe since 1968 served for lunch in the cafeteria at Adams Jr. High School in Sandusky, Ohio. Home of the best amusement park in the world, Cedar Point! If you have this one time you will be hooked,lucky for me I was good friends with the supervisor at the cafeteria, leave alone it was my good friends MOM!

SO GREAT!!!! I love the crisp part.
For the past 40-yrs I have made every variation of apple crisp trying to duplicate what my DH remembered from school. Thank you! THIS IS IT! The syrup is the difference, something no other recipe I've tried has had. We enjoyed it this weekend, and I even froze some for later. It is sweet, but that's what dessert is all about.
This has a whole bunch of sugar, but is absolutly wonderful. Worth the trip to the gym!!
