I love apple crisp, and this was very good. I think using a tart apple is important so it doesn't come out too sweet. I added some pecans to the top as a personal preference. Thank you! Made for CQ '16.
This was a lovely crisp LL. We enjoyed the flavor and texture, very much. The sweet vanilla sugar sauce coated the crisp tart apples perfectly, resulting in a tender yet chewy treat. Thank you for sharing your lovely recipe. Made for CQ3 - New York
This is a tasty apple crisp, though a bit more work than my regular recipe. I cut the recipe down to two servings but cut the sugar in the filling to half of that and it was still plenty sweet. I thought the topping could have been crunchier by DH like that it melded together with the fruit. This was a nice dessert after having a spicy main dish for dinner and perfect for a cold fall evening. Thanks for sharing, made for PRMRT
