"This may sound a bit strange, but it is really a rich and delicious recipe. The topping forms a soft golden brown crust that is somewhat cookie-like. It compliments the tartness of the apples very well. Enjoy!" — Randy

Granny Smith apples, cored and sliced
2 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
firmly packed brown sugar
quick cooking oats
I made 1/2 a recipe to try this out and it fit fine in a square pan. I didn't use granny smith apples, I believe they were Gala apples, but I don't think that matters. The difference between this apple crisp and others I have eaten is the slight change in the topping. It is not really crispy except for the "old fashioned oats" I used. And, the topping tastes like an oatmeal cookie, but has the consistency of "apple butter," but it is really sweet! The marshmallows dissolved while cooking, but I am guessing were added for extra sweetness? I thought it was a little sweet, which could definitely be cut back. But, texture aside I did like that the topping tasted slightly like a baked oatmeal cookie which was a little different.
I followed the recipe faithfully, but it was way too sweet for me. I was rather impressed with how syrupy it was and the melted marshmallows were yummy, but won't be trying it again.
I took this to a girl's night and everyone had seconds! I kept hoping that people would stop eating it so I could take home leftovers. Next time, I'll make one just for me! I made this very close to the original recipe, except in half. And I used 5 smallish Fuji apples instead of 4 large Granny Smiths, since that's what I had on hand. The proportion was perfect! So good, but it is very sweet. If you pair it with anything, make sure it's not sweet - probably not something you want to add ice cream to. It would go wonderfully with a cappuccino!
This is just way too sweet for my family -- even my tweens, who love sweets, didn't finish their portion. We love apple crisp but the marshmallows in this variation almost made our teeth hurt.
The marshmallows made it too sweet. A traditional apple crisp is much more to our liking!
Delicious! Did not deviate from the recipe. Served with whip cream. Thank for the recipe.
This was very good- everyone loved it BUT it was very, very sweet. I think when I make this again, I will use less brown sugar. The marshmellows gave it a GREAT topping- was fund and different and o so YUMMY. I wouldn't omitt them because it sets it a part from other dishes.
Loved it! I was a bit short on butter so I just made it with what I had and it still came out great! Definitely will make this again!
