This is my mom's recipe and it's the best apple crisp I've ever tasted. It doesn't use the normal oatmeal crust. Maybe that's why I love it so much!!

Member's Choice! This is one really good apple crisp. It has all the classic crisp flavors and tastes like fall in every bite. The apples and brown sugar mixture makes the perfect sauce in this crisp. We love the crunch of the crust. If you don't like oats in your apple crisp, give this recipe a try. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a bit of whipped cream... delish!
