THELMA'S APPLE CRISP IN A LOAF PAN

My mother, Thelma Neese Gwaltney, made the world's best apple crisp. It filled the kitchen with its cinnamon-y scent, telling me that night's dinner would be special. I loved the apples, but the crispy topping was my favorite. I have recently put the finishing touches on duplicating her recipe, and here it is. And--oh, by the way, I make mine in a loaf pan too.
