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!

I made this today and it came out very good. I liked the clean taste the lemon gives. One mistake I made. I cut the apples into slices that were too thin. It turned more into an applesauce crisp. Next time I'll make it into thicker chunks.

Uncle Bill, your Grandmother surely did know apples. This recipe is very tasty! I love the addition of the fresh lemon rind, the allspice and the pecans. I have never used these ingredients in any of the other apple crisp recipes I have tried, but they all go beautifully. I followed your directions to the letter, using the butter instead of margarine, except that I was unable to control myself to wait a full 10 minutes to allow it to cool before trying a sample taste! I can't wait to try it with a little ice cream! Thanks, Uncle Bill!

This was great. We were looking for an apple crisp recipe with no oatmeal, so this worked out well. We skipped the lemon rind, and still very tasty. Thanks!

Hi "Uncle Bill": Your Apple Crisp was the best we've ever tasted. The lemon juice and rind really gave it a special "Zing". I have tried other recipes for apple crisp, but this one was by far the best. Thank you very much for sharing it. Lois
