    Sub. for the NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Fla

    Em Lenhart from Acme, PA

    I don't keep NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels in the house. But I always have choc. chips and they have to be Toll House. So I sub.ed them, also used July apples. Turned out prety good.

    The Best!

    Natalie K. from Warsaw, IN

    I absolutely love making (and eating) this apple crisp! I fix mine a little differently though - I toss the apple slices in the flour, cinnamon, and brown sugar and pour the remaining on the layered apples; then I melt the butterscotch pieces over the stove and stir in some milk to make a liquid/paste, then I pour that over my layered apples. Anyway you do it, this is one delicious recipe - everyone I've given some to says the same!

    Necessity, The Mother of Invention

    ellen ward from Hurleyville, NY

    This evening I attempted to start the recipe and found no oatmeal in my pantry. Necessity is the mother of intenvtion so I substituted instant oatmeal packets for the oatmeal. I also just used my apple corer peeler and left skins on all my apples adding more fiber to the recipe and saving me alot of time. Can't wait until it comes out of the oven. I'm drooling as it smells SO good in my kitchen.

    Good Recipe

    cherlyn hawke from OKLAHOMA CITY, OK

    I tried this recipe and it was great as far as I was concerned. Everyone else thought it could use a little more sugar.

    Oh My Gosh!

    Jackie Bogedahl from TORREY, UT

    I made this for desert tonight. I didn't have any butterscotch chips but did have the Caramel/Chocolate Swirls. I used those and they were really good. My only complaint was the topping was dry. Maybe it is because of our dry climate but I will use more butter in the topping next time.

    Butterscotch Apple Crisp

    Patricia Davidson from PALMYRA, TN

    This recipe is great! I used the entire 3-lb bag of Granny Smith apples and added just a tad more brown sugar. The butterscotch morsels were the perfect addition. The entire family loved it and it was gone in about 5 minutes - our oldest grandson will be 14 in December and he requested that I make it for him on his birthday. I have a feeling I will be making this one a lot.

    yummy

    Donna Kranyik from BETHEL, CT

    I made this with the caramel swirl morsels instead of the butterscotch (which is also excellant!)...yummy! My whole family loved it . I love this recipe.

    Very Good!!!!

    Cyndi Newton Ogden from TOWANDA, PA

    This receipe is really yum-o! I made it up and put into two smaller pans, that way I can give some away. I had some silvered almonds to add for the crushed nuts. Real rich. One receipe that I will keep. My family all love apple things.

    Butterscotch Apple Crisp

    ANGELINA ROGERS from AKRON, OH

    Very good recipe. I had to tripple the amounts, and I used Splenda Brown Sugar. My guests and my husband asked for more, so I know I will be making it again. Great combo of flavors...........

    quick dessert

    angelina saldana from BAKERSFIELD, CA

    I think I would have enjoyed this recipe more if I hadn't overcooked the apples; it really took a lot out of the flavor. But, it was fun and easy to make.

    Apple Crisp

    Don Born from TUCSON, AZ

    This is the best Apple Crisp I have had in a long time the butterscotch chips and nuts really make it. We had it warm with a little milk on it. But ice cream or whip cream would make it even better.

    This makes for a great dessert. I made it for a moms get together and it was a hit. Everyone liked it because it was something different. It wasn't hard to make, either. I like trying new recipes. It was delicious. I'm glad I tried it.

    I was so suprised at how wonderful this was. My family loved it especially with vanilla bean ice cream on top. I sent some to my future Mother In Law, she called and asked for the recipe. I felt so honored that she would ask.

    Delicious

    Julia Sastre from BRONX, NY

    Hello, I'm Julie from New York and I love me some butterscotch, and I love me some sweet apples, put that together and just imagin the sweet warmth of apples with a little crisp with just a hint of butterscotch and "WOW" what a rythm. But to top it off the ingredients and the measurements were all right on time. My pie came out great, the kids loved it. Thanks Very Best for you new ideas. Julie.

    Not As Good As I Expected

    Becca Waltrip from Murrieta, CA

    I was very excited for this recipe, because I love butterscotch. But, when I made it I ended up being dissapointed. It wasn't really all that good...the flavor just wasn't there. (Oh, and it turned out behing much darker than the picture).

  •  Star(s)

    So easy and so wonderful!

    KRISTIN Ramey from Longmont, CO

    I made this for my holiday potluck lunch at work. First of all, my husband was jealous because it made the house smell amazing and it was almost impossible to keep our hands out of it at home! It disappeared so fast at work, and I've already emailed the recipe to my co-workers. It was a big hit and a great way to use the apples from our tree in the backyard! WONDERFUL! I am going to make it again!

    Butterscotch Apple Crisp

    Ranee DeMott from Perrinton, MI

    This has a unique flavor that my family liked. However, they are used to more traditional (high sugar content) recipes. They like it much better with about twice the sugar called for. This would be a great recipe for a dieter - a low fat, low sugar dessert that satisfies the sweet cravings without a ton of calories.

    Tastes great

    elizabeth gilliland from PEMBROKE PINES, FL

    Tastes great,but.. not very pretty. I dressed it up with whipped cream.

    Great Apple Dessert!

    Mary Esso from Mentor, OH

    I love this recipe. It is simple, and the apples are complimented by the butterscotch chips-you can use more or less depending on how sweet you want it. A great way to enjoy the flavors of fall!

    Yummy

    This was very easy to make and was very tasty. I don't like Butterscotch, so I used the caramel and milk chocolate swirled morsels.

    Butterscotch Apple Crisp

    DONNA KISER from FORT DEFIANCE, VA

    This is a very easy recipe. I only had a cup of butterscotch morsels on hand, but still gave it great flavor. I think the topping needs to have a little more sugar in it, not quite sweet enough for my taste. Overall, very good and I will be making this again.

  •  Star(s)

    Perfect everytime

    Jill Darin from Geneseo, IL

    I have a Nestle cookbook that I have used for at least five years. This recipe is in it. I always make it in the fall when the apples are ripe. It never fails to get rave reviews. I have served it warm and cold, it doesn't matter, it's just good. It doesn't last long at a party or at home.

    UMM UMMM GOOD!!!

    Cynthia Trowbridge from FARMINGTON HILLS, MI

    One of my daughters invited my husband & me & our other daughter & her husband to dinner. I was bringing a strawberry-rhubarb pie & my other daughter said she didn't like that kind of pie. she asked me to also make an apple dessert. I saw this recipe & decided to make it. Everyone loved it even the one daughter who doesn't like apple desserts loved it. I will make it again and it is easy to make.

    Delicious!!

    ANNE STEELE from MORRISVILLE, NC

    I made this for Father's Day for my husband who loves apples and butterscotch. Very easy and very good. This is a definite keeper! The only thing that I would do differently from now on is use less butterscotch chips. It was a bit sweet for us. Other than that it was wonderful.

    Good change to a tired recipe

    LELANI LANDIS from SMITHFIELD, WV

    I liked the butterscotch flavor with the apples. My husband liked the originial recipe without the butterscotch. So I alternate between the two when I make apple crisp.
