This is something a little different than the old standby dessert. Goes great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream a la mode!

Mirjam, I loved this! It contained all my favorite foods. I enjoyed the addition of the nuts (I used chopped walnuts) and the dates to the apple crisp. Very simple to prepare with the use of a food processor to slice the apples. Excellent dessert. Thanks for this recipe!

Oh my gosh! We love apple crisp. I normally make a recipe with oatmeal in the crisp, but tried this today. This is absolutely delicious! I used chopped pecans. The combination of the sweet dates and the pecans is amazing and even more delicious than a traditional apple crisp. Thanks for sharing!
