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.

Super Delicious! I used granny smith apples (11), and found that the entire recipe needed to be doubled for a 9 x 13 pan. I added a bit more oatmeal after processing to retain more of the full oatmeal texture. Perfect with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. Thanks for a great recipe jinx.

Amazing apple crisp!! I made a few changes though... I used Granny Smith and Braeburn apples, cut the butter back to around 4 tablespoons and used a bit more flour, brown sugar, and oatmeal than the recipe called for. This was great and lasted a week in our fridge just fine.

I love the texture of the topping, and the flavor of the nuts is yummy! I thought while I was making it that I should spice up the topping, which would still be tasty, but leaving it without the extra spices let the flavor of the nuts come through. I did use pecans rather than walnuts simply because my inlaws have a pecan tree and that's what I have! Delicious!

I have always wanted to make home made apple crisp, but forgot about it until RicipeZarr suggested it on their home page. I picked this one and the whole family loved it, including me. It has an awesome taste, and the nuts really add to the "comfort" of the food. We ate it hot with cold vanilla ice cream! Perfect!

This is really yummy. I followed the recipe pretty much as it says to, but I used the apples from my neighbours tree. I am not sure what they are, but they are small, tart and crispy. I also used lime instead of apple juice. I used vegan margarine in this as well as my DH and I don't eat dairy products. It turned out really flavourful. Thanks for a great recipe, I'll make this one again.

Love this recipe! My daughter and I made it for breakfast and it's fantastic! We left out the walnuts, used about 12 small apples, and 5 T of butter--and sprinkled the apples with vanilla after the lemon juice. A perfect crisp recipe! :)
