Two-Layered Apple Crisp

I feel blessed to have the opportunity to bake this for the special ladies at the local homeless shelter. Try it with Honeycrisp apples, Golden Delicious or a blend of the two apple types. —Char Morse, Whitehall, Michigan

    Quite good. I cut the white sugar by half, and it was a good level of sweetness. I will definitely up the cinnamon next time and possibly the nutmeg as well. I also left the skins on the apples. There's really no point to removing them unless you specifically don't like apple skins.

    Good ... however I too found the crumb topping dry and even though I used one more additional apple the apple filling was more chewy than tender crisp like a pie filling. That said I baked this at 4400' elevation and feel that could very well make a difference. Perhaps add more fluid to the apples, more butter to the crumb mixture; use corn starch instead of flour in the apple mixture; reduce the sugar slightly and decrease baking time. All things you do for bread baking at higher elevation?? Will have to try at sea level.

    The flavour was good but mine also came out quite dry. Next time I would increase the butter to 1 cup. I think that will alleviate the dryness somewhat.

    The crumb topping was very dry and everything was very sweet even though I used more apples.
