I have been making this since I was 18 years old and had just moved out on my own. I love this recipe! Try it with other fruits, or combinations. Peaches and berries (especially blueberries) is a good one. Sprinkle with nuts for another variation.

Great recipe...I have been looking for one with an oatmeal topping. I added blueberries to the filling and will also add peaches next time. The topping was very sweet and you don't need to add any sugar to the filling. Also added some flax seed to the oatmeal which gave it a little more crunch. This will be made again...thank you Catherine

This was such an easy dish to fix and was lightning quick... the longest part was peeling and chopping the apples. I used a mixture of tart and semisweet apples (Granny Smith and Cox) and it turned out great. The topping is very rich and takes on almost a caramelly taste upon baking. Don't be tempted to add any extra sugar to the apples - the topping is plenty sweet enough and quite delicious. Lovely to look at and a very tasty, quick dessert!

Now this is my favorite Apple Crisp. Delicious and very easy to make. Love the oatmeal in the topping. I used granny smith apples and dried cramberries, yum,yum. Served it with vanilla ice cream, DH and the grand-kids loved it. Thank you will be making this often.
