This is soo freaking good! Too sweet or not! I'm not very fond of crab apples but since my little girl found a raided an apple tree on her way from school I figured I must do something with all the apples and this recipe came up! I love it!! Thank u! Only thing I did change was I used 1c. Brown sugar in place of white sugar. It's just my preference for crisps! *****
