1 (21 ounce) can
apple pie filling
The use of the pie filling is a good idea and makes for quick preparation. I modified the topping a little by using 3/4 cup flour and 1 1/4 cup oats. I also used 3/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup walnuts. Serve warm with ice cream, yum!
I'm not an experienced baker, and I didn't know butter should be cold and firm. I let it soften and batter came out creamy and doughy instead of crumbly. Next time should be much better. The flavor was good.
Still a great recipe, although I used less flour and I always add more spice. I NEVER use margarine, but I used fresh butter instead. I have been meaning to pick up fresh apples for days and I never did and I really wanted to bake apple crisp, so I used a can of sliced apples I already had. Tastes fantastic topped with cinnamon, whipping cream and caramel.
Easy to make and double
I used Jen Marshals suggestions made in Sept. 05. It was the best apple crisp I have had. I used the apple pie filling, the spices and procedure that this recipe had and the rest I used her directions. If you want a good easy dessert this is wonderful.
The crumble topping for this is excellent. I decided not to cheat with the filling. I used 4 fresh sliced Granny Smith apples, teaspoon of cinnamon & all spice, teaspoon brown sugar and a couple of cap fulls of dark rum.
Was perfectly cooked after 45mins. Very yummy served with vanilla ice-cream.
The topping for this was disgusting. I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out all gummy and tasteless. I even cooked it for about 20 extra minutes for a total of 40, and the top still didn't really brown right. To much flour, not enough butter and sugar? I'll go back to my oatmeal topping thanks. I gave it two stars only because I hadn't thought of using pie filling for apple crisp before.
Don't waste your pie filling. The 2 cups of flour made a gummy topping with no absolutely no flavor. There was nothing "crisp" about this recipe. Stick with a good oatmeal/brown sugar topping.
