- 1⁄3 cup margarine
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.

I've made this twice. But I agree with a previous review, 4 apples is no where near enough.I used small apples from our single tree in the yard. I had to have cut up at least 10. We've still got plenty of apples on the tree. I will make this again and I'll weigh the cutup apples next time, and either update this review or write another one. Aside from the apple quantity, I didn't change anything else and it's come out very good both times.
Honestly? To make this work, you'd have to make so many changes it would be a different recipe. No offense, but this was terrible. Not enough apple for a 9X 13 pan, not enough butter/oil to make a "crisp." There should be less sugar and more cinnamon. Sorry, but it failed.
Following the recommendations of others I put more sugar in the topping and less in with the fruit (I used black currants and strawberries with the apple), and added some extra oil to the crust (no margarine). I wish I had added some cinnamon too, but all in all this was really good and really simple! Thanks so much for posting.
