Very good. When I make it again & I will, I'll make more of the crust ingredients. Would like a thicker crust.

This is delicious! I used 1/2C applesauce instead of the oil and I added some cloves and allspice to spice it up some more. Yum!! Thanks for sharing!

mmmmm divine. The way you cook the apples first makes a huge difference in the finished product - tender apples and a crispy crust, not a burnt crust.

I'm sure you've received answers to your question, but for my 2-cents worth, I've tried both the Red Delicious and the Granny Smith. I chose the loose individual apples over the bargain bagged apples because I've found the individuals are more crunchy and not like styrofoam like the bagged bargin applies. I really think the crunch is the factor, not so much the tartness of the apple.

So easy and made with ingredients that are usually on hand anyway. I had too many apples and wanted to do something with them, and glad I did! Next time I think I'd cut down on the brown sugar. This would also be great with some fresh cherries added in with the apples. Next time!
