Apple Crisp

This is very easy to make and tastes delicious. I made the apple crisp using only the brown sugar, butter, apples and flour and cinnamon. (This was mentioned in a comment below.) It's very good!

Would this recipe be for a borderline diabetic? Dietitian comment: I recommend making the changes suggested in the helpful hints to decrease carbohydrate content as this has a direct impact on your blood sugar level.

I made the regular and the diabetic recipe for a patient party. The regular was delicious. The diabetic recipe did not turn out at all. It was very dark brown and a sticky mess. Moderator comment: Thanks for the feedback. We will go to the kitchen and rework the diabetic version.

I saw this recipe--I make apple crisp but use only brown sugar, butter, apples and flour and cinnamon. Eliminate the veg. shortening, baking powder, white sugar and baking soda. It's an old family recipe and tastes great--saving tons of sugar and the phosphates from the soda and baking powder--then you can eat more!! Give it a try.

This is really GOOD. However,1/2 cup is not realistic. And BTW, is it so goo served warm with either fat-free Cool Whip(tm) or sneek a little cream on top. I suppose rice milk would taste good with it, also.
