"I found this scribbled inside a book dated 1916 in my grandma's attic. It's still a bomb dessert after all these years."

"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 is simply DELISH!!! I will be making this on a regular basis. Thank you for posting!"
"This was so simple that at first I was not sure it would taste good but oh was I wrong. It is great and very easy to make. Will be making again and again!!"
"Simply "down home" good. "
"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!"
"Wonderful! very easy to make! i left the peels on and it was yummy."
"Very tasty! Next time I think I will use more apples since one layer was thin. I will make this again."
"I made this yesterday with Splenda because we're on a low-carb diet, I couldn't believe how good it was! I served it with homemade creme fraiche ... delicious! Thank you for sharing your grandma's recipe!"
"Num num num, hooray for old dusty attics! So glad you shared. I sprinkled some brown sugar on top but otherwise did not change it."
"An easy & simple recipe which is ideal to end any meal. I used home grown apples from my backyard - perfect! Next time, however I will add less butter."
"You are so right this is still a bomb dessert. Simple,Deliciuos and DOWN HOME GOOD. I will sure be making it again & again. we love apple crisp."
"I used Red Delicious apples and I didn't peel them. Great recipe! I did add blueberries which cooked down and added a bit of liquid. However, that's my fault for not adjusting the water properly. We paired this with ice cream and the entire dish was gone that night. Thanks for sharing! Delish."
"This is so wonderful. I don't like apple crisp with brown sugar or oatmeal and this recipe is the one I remember from the Peter Pan marriage and lost when I moved out of the housel I just served it to company and they loved it and I forgot to buy the vanilla ice cream. Great recipe."
"Simple, indeed, and oh, so delicious! I think I mixed the topping too long, forgetting to stop when it was crumbly, so I'll be more careful next time, but the idea that it was still so darn good despite that mistake says something. It says delicious. Thank you for sharing this!"
"Very simple and very yummy! I also tried it with half white sugar and half brown sugar too."
