    A very good apple crumble. I used 8 small Granny Smith apples. It was easy to make and I baked mine for 30 minutes. Next time I will reduce the amount of lemon juice due to personal tastes.

    What a fantastic dessert! I used Granny Smith Apples and skipped on the lemon juice. I served ours with vanilla icecream, n it was enjoyed by the whole family. Spot on, thanks for sharing!

    Tasty & simple, my kind of dessert! My only problem was that by cooking the apples until they were soft, they were mushy by the time the dish was baked. I’ll make that adjustment, because I will definitely make this again! Wonderful with icecream topping.

    Oh my, this was good! I went a little heavy on the cinnamon and skipped the powdered sugar altogether as I’m not fond of it. It was sweet and tasty enough without the additional sugar. And did I mention how good it was? 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    This is marvelous!! I took it to work to share and my coworker declared it the best apple crumble she’s ever had and begged for the recipe. I used 8 Rome apples and baked it for the full 30 minutes and put it under the broiler briefly to brown the top (it must have been my oven). I’ll make this again and again. Thanks katia!!

    I like the factt that you pre-cook the apples before baking. It guarantees you have no undercooked apples in the end product. Family loved it! Quick, easy, delicious! A keeper.
