Without a doubt, the BEST apple crisp ever!!!! We loved it! My husband used the word "sublime" to describe it. My daughter (11) helped make it and it was fun and easy too. I forgot to add the nutmeg to the apples so I sprinkled it on top before it went in the oven and that seemed to do the trick. Besides that I followed the recipe exactly. It was PERFECT! I will make this again and again! Thanks so much Aroostook!

Delicious simple-to-make apple desert. I halved the recipe (but used 2 eggs) and cooked it in an 8x8 pan allowing a little extra time for cooking in a smaller pan. Thanks Aroostook for sharing -- I am adding this to my apple desert collection as we will be having this often during apple season.

Aroostook, this is a great dessert! You are right, it is different than any crisp recipe I am familiar with either. To me the favor and texture is more like an apple pie than a crisp, but much easier to prepare than a pie! I loved the sweetness of the topping, it enhances the apple filling. I already have a favorite apple crisp recipe, but this is so different, that this recipe will become a favorite APPLE recipe and made often around my house! Thanks for sharing this winner!
