I read this wrong the first time I made it and didn't realize that half the crumbles go under the apples and half on top - I'd put it all under and none on top! This time I did it right, and I now agree that this recipe is absolutely WONDERFUL! I do want to cut down the sugar next time I make it, just for the health aspect rather than the taste - it wasn't overly sweet, but I'm just hoping that if I use sweet apples, it can use less sugar. One note - I use thick rolled oats rather than the thin kind, which makes for a much more substantial and crispy crisp than if you use Quaker Oats or a similar thinly rolled oat. I saw some of the negative reviews, and I honestly think there must have been something done in the process of making it that went wrong - like mismeasuring or maybe using instant or fast cooking oats or something - in fact, someone said the crisp mix was powdery, which simply isn't possible if you've used good quality real rolled oats. I've made a lot of crisps, and this was truly one of the best ever.
