""Crisp fall apples, tossed in cinnamon and baked with delicious streusel. Almost as good as pie, with half the calories and it's in the oven in 10 minutes! Plus, it can be served warm with ice cream, and the smaller size means it won't be there to tempt you later. Enough for a small mini casserole dish that will serve 3-4 people. Double the recipe for an 8x8 pan, quadruple it for a 9x13 pan". Unless you double the batch and use a bigger pan, in which case, it's a great breakfast topping for oatmeal! Enjoy! Adapted from Penzey's spices and the intro is what they said about the recipe. A little history: In baking and pastry making, the term streusel (a German word meaning "something scattered or sprinkled", from the verb streuen, akin to the English verb 'strew') refers to a crumb topping of butter, flour, and white sugar (traditional German) that is baked on top of muffins, breads, and cakes (e.g. Streuselkuchen). Some modern recipes add various spices and occasionally chopped nutmeats. Although the topping is of German origin, it is sometimes referred to as Danish or Swedish."

"This is really very good."
"A really nice easy dessert, I used 3 medium to large granny smith apples (for 3 serves) and because we don't like over sweet desserts and for dietary reasons I cut the sugar back and also used brown sugar 1 tablespoon with the apples and 1 1/2 tablespoons in the topping (will cut that back to 1 tablespoon next time). Cooked at 175C fan forced for 35 minutes though didn't brown as much as I expected that may be because I used a lot less sugar. Thank you Sharon123, made for Went To Market."
"Mmmm, this is soooo nice. My DH won't eat pudding but he likes apple pie and IMHO this is better than apple pie and I know he will like it. I can't wait for him to come home now. I used gala apples, and soft brown sugar and it was delicious. I will make this again most definitely. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT#6 2010 I just came back to this to say he did like it and I think this fantastic cold with cream :yummy:"
"This was yummy and so easy. I used a combination of apples, red and green. It would be delicious warm with ice cream. Thanks Sharon! Made for Swizzle Chicks and ZWT6, Germany."
"We really enjoyed this! I squeezed some lemon on the apples and used half white sugar, half brown sugar for the apple part. I upped the cinnamon to 1 T. and also used the nutmeg. Served with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and it was a big hit...and easy too! Made for ZWT6. Thanks for posting, Sharon."
"This has to be the easiest apple streusel / apple crisp recipe I've ever tried, and the cinnamon flavor really comes through. Being early summer, fall apples aren't available right now, so I used some Galas, and they were just right. Very tasty recipe!"
"Very good and SO easy and quick to pop in the oven. I increased the cinnamon a bit because I like it. I used Granny Smith apples as they were what I had on hand and a dark demera style brown sugar for the apples seasoning. I used alcohal free vanilla instead of extract. In the topping I used salted butter and white rice flour to be gluten free and regular white sugar. I served it with canned whipped cream as that is also all I had at the time. I'm sure real whipped cream or vanilla ice cream would be much better. Made for Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens Potluck, Round 01/10."
"I have a recipe similar to this from my MIL from year's ago. Very good and very simple. I used 4 large apples and upped the cinnamon to 1 t. as I love cinnamon:-) Kept the rest of the ingredient amounts the same. This says fall like no other!~"
