"This is a different, richer apple crisp. This recipe comes from a bed and breakfast in Searsport, Maine."

"Without a doubt, the BEST apple crisp ever!!!! We loved it! My husband used the word "sublime" to describe it. My daughter (11) helped make it and it was fun and easy too. I forgot to add the nutmeg to the apples so I sprinkled it on top before it went in the oven and that seemed to do the trick. Besides that I followed the recipe exactly. It was PERFECT! I will make this again and again! Thanks so much Aroostook!"
"Delicious simple-to-make apple desert. I halved the recipe (but used 2 eggs) and cooked it in an 8x8 pan allowing a little extra time for cooking in a smaller pan. Thanks Aroostook for sharing -- I am adding this to my apple desert collection as we will be having this often during apple season."
"Aroostook, this is a great dessert! You are right, it is different than any crisp recipe I am familiar with either. To me the favor and texture is more like an apple pie than a crisp, but much easier to prepare than a pie! I loved the sweetness of the topping, it enhances the apple filling. I already have a favorite apple crisp recipe, but this is so different, that this recipe will become a favorite APPLE recipe and made often around my house! Thanks for sharing this winner!"
"My oh My...So good. I just love the crust. I didn' have apples but have so much pears so I used that. Also, instead of nutmeg. I used cinnnamon...Such an easy recipe that is so delicious. Thank you."
"Excellent Apple Crisp and a nice change from the usual oat crumb topping. I did cut the sugar to 2.5 cups for the topping on my second time making it as I thought it was a bit too sweet."
"This was very tasty; however, I think I may have overcooked it as the top was extremely crunchy. I almost feel guilty just giving it a four if it's my fault but it was golden and not burned. I served it warm with a dollop of ice cream."
"This was absolutely wonderful. The topping is what makes it special. My kids gobbled up a whole pan and I made a second pan and it's nearly gone. I only pick what I think are the best recipes and this one is a keeper-and easy to make! "
"Tried the half portion- and used brown sugar to coat the apples (1/4 cup). Also, used crab apples for extra tartness. Followed the rest of recipe, and was surprised at outcome - everyone asked for seconds and recipe! Definite a keeper > the brown sugar offset the tart aples perfect!!! "
