Apple crisp/crumble recipe?

Katerina | Mar 21, 200203:19 PM     19

First of all I'd like to say Mark Bittman's pie recipe from How to Cook Everything (a great cookbook) produces an aromatic, buttery, flavorful pie, which is also beeeeyoootiful. Seriously, my pie looks better than a lot of magazine pictures, and makes many photographs in food/cooking catalogs look pitiful by comparison.

OK, enough bragging. What I really wanted to talk about was...

I love desserts made with apples, but am often too lazy to make a pie from scratch, and I've made apple clafouti three times in three weeks (see link). Crisps and crumbles seem like an attractive alternative, but the few recipes I've tried so far have been disappointing - the crust was too hard or too sweet, or the flavor of apples was overpowered by the brown sugar, or the apples cooked to mush... do you have a favorite recipe you'd like to share?

Thanks!
