We made this last night for the first time and it was fabulous! I followed the recipe as written (I even used cinnamon from a spice shop - yum!) and it was perfect. I do have a few suggestions that might help someone. First, I used Granny Smith apples. I think a sweeter apple would have made this too sweet for me. My apples were also on the small side (2 to 3 inch diameter) so I will probably toss a few more in there the next time. Second, I always have such a hard time with cutting in the butter, so I finally gave up last night and put the mixture in my blender/food processor and pulsed it a few times. The crumb was so crispy and tender and consistent - best topping I've ever made. Finally, when the timer went off, I was tempted to leave it in the oven a little longer because the top didn't look really brown, but I could see the filling bubbling on the sides, so I took it out of the oven anyhow. So glad I did! It kept the topping from getting that really hard, crunchy texture and kept it lighter and crispier. Great recipe and I will definitely be making this one over and over!
