This was excellent! Made the whole house smell so good. I would definately make this again. In fact this is my second time. Sorry to say I forgot to post a review the first time. Wouldn't change a thing. I will say the last time I used some dried cranberries I had in the cupboard and it turned out great. Thanks for posting this recipe!
I think it's about time I gave this recipe a review. I've been using this for about two years now. I make it for just about any occasion (or sometimes for no reason at all) between October and January, and it has never failed to delight anyone who has tasted it. As suggested, I add a little lemon juice to the fruit mixture, and that just takes it over the top. When it comes out of the oven, I let it sit for 20 minutes or so (at home I have to guard it) for the filling to set up. On it's own it's fantastic; with a little vanilla ice cream on top, it's transcendent!
Couldn't give it less than 5 stars.
DELISH! I cut the recipe in half, except for the topping, and cooked it in an 8x8 pan. Also, I used Brown Sugar Splenda and whole wheat flour in the topping...just to feel less guilty about eating it all. It was so good! I would add Pecans to the topping next time. We ate it with Pumpkin Ice Cream. Yum!
I loved this recipe! A really, really nice change from your average apple crisp. I didn't double the topping recipe and it was perfect for our family. The only thing I did different was sprinkle fresh lemon juice over the apples. I think it brings out the flavor of the apples. If your looking for a great recipe for the holidays...this is it!!!It has a very festive presentation.
Surprised no one mentioned it but a 9"x13" pan is way too small. Especially if you double the recipe for the topping as some of you have suggested. It is most disconcerting when, in the middle of a recipe, you have to make changes. Please people, do not post recipes unless you are absolutely sure you have covered all the bases. You have an unsuspecting audience out there, be kind.
I really enjoyed this Carol, with a big dollop of vanilla ice cream! Thanks!
I have looked for years for the right crisp topping and filling and with this recipe, I've finally found it. I didn't change a thing. It was delicious, perfect, texture, sweetness and the topping was the best. My husband really liked it too. He says, "You make this all the time, I'll eat it"!! And he's not a sweet eater! Thank you so much. Diane in Salem
Very good! My 3 year old son didn't care for it, but I was happy to eat his portion. I did add a sprinkle of lemon juice.
Really great crisp recipe! The flour folded in with the filling keeps the juices from running on the bottom of the dish. I also doubled the topping, and it was sooo gooood with ice cream!
