I took the advice of the other reviewers and added more apples, 7 cups. I also mixed in a 1/2 pint of organic blueberries with the Corland apples. Other changes i made - I doubled the oats and added 1/4 cup more flour, reduced the nutmed to 1/2 teaspoon and added 1 teaspoon cinnamon. The crumb topping was just the right amount (it wouldn't be enough if i followed this part of the recipe) however, it was way too sweet. Still edible, but you can easily have used 1/2 to 3/4 cup brown sugar. I cut in the butter with a pastry cutter, and set it aside while i prepared the fruit. When i assembled the crisp i first squeezed a handful before gently breaking it up on top of the fruit. This makes a chunkier crumble. The nuts definitely puts this recipe above all others, and the blueberries added another fruit dimension. With the small adjustments, this is an excellent recipe!
