thinly sliced apples
Easy and soooo good. I always get rave reviews when I make this dish. Don't slice the apples too thin though or they end up too mushy.
I'm not giving this recipe a terrible rating because I'm sure I must've done something wrong to get the results I did. Okay flavor, really BAD presentation. I tried to about double everything - put the apples in the orange juice as I was slicing them so they wouldn't brown. Either I used too much orange juice (I only used a little over 1/3 cup) or having the apples in it caused them to release water while cooking because when I pulled this out of the oven it was SWIMMING in buttery water. I kid you not - rocking the pan from side to side make it look like the apples were floating on top of water. The topping had all melted and pretty much disintegrated in the water and it was just . . . ugly. And REALLY REALLY sweet. I even drained the watery part and just gave husband the apples and ice cream and he only ate about three bites.
I'll probably try a different recipe next time since I couldn't make this one work. Sorry. :(
super delicious. This tastes mighty fine. And so easy to make too. (ps substitute some brown sugar for the white and it will taste even better.) Still the best recipie around!
I have fixed this recipe a couple of times and everyone loves it. The only thing different I used 1/4 C.less sugar and used 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar.Also added 15 min. baking time.
EXCELLENT!!! i used a Cuisinart to slice those apples simply, uniform, and thin... it also whips up the crumbly topping nicely.
I used 1/2 C brown sugar and 1/4 white. I added 1/2 t vanilla to the oj before pouring it over apples SO EASY, SO GOOD!!! I'll make it again...
This recipe was a last minute find and what a find! I made it for my church choir's annual "Welcome Back From Summer Break" picnic and it received many, many compliments. To those of you who advised doing the sugar as 1/2 white and 1/2 brown, thanks! The advise was well taken. Like many here, I also doubled the recipe and added a cup of raisins to the apple mixture (I like raisins!). The addition made for a very flavorful touch. Thanks for the recipe, Barbara! It is definetly going into the Recipe Box! -MEB
OMG brilliant. I followed some of the other review recommendation and did half brown half white sugar and it was absolutley fantastic. My fiance and i just couldn't help ourselves and ate it all out of the pie dish.
AMAZING! I peeled the apples first, doubled the recipe to make two, and used half white and half brown sugar. My husband could not get enough, it was great and really easy.
