I made this last night for my family and it was a big hit with everyone. I made a smaller amount, using a pie pan... so for the filling, I reduced the white sugar to 3/4 cup and the water to 1/3 cup (I also used older 'gala' apples 'on their last leg'). For the crumble topping, I reduced the amount of oatmeal, flour, & brown sugar to 3/4 cup each. I had a lot of crumble topping which was good (at least 1/2" thick crumble crisp fully covered the top of pie). The apple crisp was still a bit too sweet, which my son thought was wonderful. I should have reduced the sugars a bit more, especially since I used 'gala' apples - they are already sweet. Next time, if I'm using 'gala' apples and cooking the same amount, I'll further reduce both the white sugar used in filling and the brown sugar used in crumble topping, to 1/2 cup each. It will still taste sweetly yummy and I doubt my son will notice the difference. We ate it as it was...no ice cream and it was delicious. I have no doubt it will be a fabulous taste treat when eaten with vanilla ice cream. I plan to make it again and eat it with ice cream soon. This recipe is a 'keeper'. I don't need look for another apple crisp recipe version.
