This is tasty, but it is so similar to apple crisp I might just forgo the crust next time and have that instead. The recipe is really enough to fill 2 pie shells. I would definitely cover the entire top of the pie with tin foil for at least some of the baking time, so the bottom crust can bake through and not burn the top.

I have to give this recipe only 2 stars..Although the flavor and the crumb topping were quite flavorful, the overall pie was very watery. I don't know why I didn't follow my instinct to add flour to the apple mixture. If you are making this pie, be sure to add flour to the mixture unless you want a watery mess!

Very easy, tasted great! I used Granny Smith apples, and added 1/4 C. brown sugar and 1 T. flour to the apple mixture. I liked this topping better than the traditional 2-crust pie. I don't think there will be any leftover by the end of the evening.

very tasty recipe, but you need to add flour to apple mixture or it is to juicy and you have a soggy crust. i used 2 tbsp. also 8 apples is to variable i used 8 first time and it was way to much apple took to long to cook top had to be covered to stop burning second time i used 6 cups chopped apple

This was very good. I used firm granny smith apples and they were cooked perfectly at 45 minutes. I also cut the allspice to only half a teaspoon, but I thought it still overpowered the other flavors. If I made this again, I would just leave it out altogether. I also drizzled melted caramels over the top after it was done and this helped keep the top from crumbling so much. It was very good and went fast!

This was the greatest apple pie my family and I ever had. I doubled the amount of the crunch on each pie and even baked just the crunch mix to use on plain vanilla ice cream. It was amazing!!! I love that crunch!!! I even used it in my yogurt and cereal. Thank you!!

Im not a huge apple pie fan but this is better than a tradional double crust pie! I used cortland apples... I also took a suggestion from someone else and melted about 20 caramels with about 2 tablespoons of half and half and drizzled it over top. Served with vanilla bean ice cream. Yum yum yum!

My sister Alexandra made this recipe too and told me about it. This was good. I had people who do not like apple pie eating this. The one thing I did take off was the pecans. They gave it an odd flavor. I did not have Macintosh apples available so I used 10 little Granny Smith's apples, which I let marinade overnight in the apple mix. This was enough for 2 regular pies. Next time I will try this in a deep dish pie crust instead. Overall, Dee-lish !!
