I made this for a dessert with my sister. We really enjoyed it. I added a touch of vanilla to the apple and lemon juice mixture. Excellent! We topped it with vanilla ice cream. Delicious! I will be making this again. I also cut down on the butter but next time I may add 5 tablespoons to the topping instead of 4 tablespoons. Awesome recipe!

Just like my mom always makes. I am so glad you posted this so I don't have to do the work adding it! She does make a few changes though; in oat mixture she only used 4 Tbs butter and puts the extra 2 Tbs in with the apple mixture. She only uses 4 c apples ( I think because we enjoy more topping) and doesn't use lemon juice or walnuts, but I think I will try it next time! She also uses an 8x8 dish. Thanks, this recipe is a keeper for sure!

I used Haralson apples and got rave reviews. My only quibble was that a 9x13 pan is too big for this recipe. The topping didn't fully cover the pan and the apples cooked down so that it was barely a quarter inch think. I'd either double the recipe or use a smaller pan.
