I'm very impressed with this simple, yet scrumptious dish. I make it with splenda (sugar substitute) to cut down on the carbs and it tastes great. A hit with everyone I've served it to. I've made it about 4 times now with granny's, fuji's, red delicious and braeburn apples and each time it's turned out well.

Here's proof that sometimes less really is more. Very easy to make, this is the perfect dessert to finish a big, hearty meal, because it's so light and yet so full of flavor! I particularly liked that the topping stayed so crunchy - it was a nice contrast with the tender apples. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

This recipe is simple and delicious. I like the fact that this dessert is made with ingredients most of us already have around the kitchen. There was a lot of crumb topping, so I ended up putting some on the bottom of the pan. It worked out very well...I'll be making this one again!

Great recipe ! I used two Granny Smith apples, and three MacIntosh. The only change I made to this recipe was to add only half a cup of sugar since we don't like things too sweet! The end result was delicious! Thanks for this easy and tasty recipe!

Wonderful!!! I followed the recipe to the letter, except I had 3 apples instead of 5. It was easy to make and tastes great. A keeper it is!! Have any more of those 1916 recipes?? :)

This recipe is YUM, YUM, good!!! The only issue we had is we should have doubled the recipe. We made this to leave on the fireplace for Santa and he hate the whole thing--didn't leave a drop!!!! He must have really liked it because he usually only takes a couple bites of his cookies. Thanks!
