Apple Crisp by Spice Islands® Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

Mmmm... heavenly!! I had been making homemade applesauce and realized I had 3 extra peeled and chopped apples that wouldn't fit in the applesauce bowl. Not wanting to waste them, I went online, quickly found this recipe and threw it together. I had no Spice Islands lemon peel on hand, so I put in about a rounded half teaspoon or so of zest from the lemon that I used for the lemon juice. I also substituted 1/4 cup of quick-cooking oats for the walnuts. It came out perfect. Thanks for the great recipe!

No complaints or criticisms from me - and none from Hubs either. I liked the subtle hint of nutmeg that complemented the cinnamon and I liked the butterscotch flavor using all brown sugar gave this. I did add the lemon juice but not the peel - a little bit of lemon to provide a little tartness was what I was after, not lemon flavor. Only because of personal preference, I skipped the walnuts. Apple crisp is such a fall, homey, comfort food dessert - and this is a good one.

I felt like the crisp part needed oats or something to make it more substantial, but I also appreciated that this recipe is lower-cal than some of the other apple crisps out there. The lemon definitely added to it. Really good!

One of the better crisp recipes. Depending on the sweetness of the apples you can use either all of the brown sugar or 1/2 the brown sugar for the apple base portion. I used 1/2 with a gala apple and golden delicious combo. I used the full amount in the crumble topping but substituted chopped pecans for the walnuts.

I loved it. Absolutely delicious! Didn't add lemon peel as I didn't have any fresh lemon on hand, but did add lemon juice.
