We really did like this recipe. The cinnamon and allspice made a nice combination. Will put it in my file. Thanks for posting this recipe.
Tweaked a bit, but love the no oats alternative! reduced the sugar/lemon juice in the filling, subbed half oat flour and half white whole wheat flour in the topping, omitted the lemon rind and used 4 Tbsp. butter with roughly one Tbsp. olive oil. Also subbed almonds for the pecans...ooh, and I threw some peanut butter chips on and baked somewhere around 35 minutes and it might have been a tad too long. But the end result was fab!! Thanks!
This is some good Apple Crisp Uncle Bill! I loved the combination of spices and my family inhaled theirs! Delicious with whip cream or a scoop of Vanilla ice cream, which is my favorite!
