"This apple crisp recipe was given to my husband from an elderly woman when we were first married. DH did a job for the elderly couple that he knew they couldn’t pay for. While he was there working, she offered him a plate of apple crisp that she just took out of the oven. DH said it was the best apple crisp he had ever eaten. He was given the best payment he could have ever received…..the recipe. I make at least 2 apple crisps every year for DH. He likes his crisp warm, with a scoop of ice cream. It is good cold, but is the BEST when it is warm. I have used several different kinds of apples making this recipe, which are all good but, I think Gala makes the best apple crisp. Gala apples do not cook up too juicy or get too soft and soggy. It is just right! :)"

Always enjoyed by the bunch of us at my house, this apple crisp is so good we have seconds often! My grandchildren have requested to have it several times in the past few weeks, and I don't object one single bit! We top ours with ice cream for a true classic treat!

Delicious and easy to make, and done in no time is an added plus for this awesome crisp. One of those desserts that you can have more than one helping of and still want more. Ice cream is a must!

I doubled the recipe and put it in 2 separate pans so my son could take one home. We loved it. The topping was delicious and different than the traditional oatmeal topping, and we really liked it! I had mine with ice cream and my son ate his plain and grinned from ear to ear the whole time he was eating it. It was a hit for us!
