Now this usually comes out some baked apples and some apple sauce. We like it like that. DO NOT slice your apples thin. Slice like into 8 pieces otherwise you will really have applesauce. We like it better the second day and fight over the main big crunchy bit on the top.
I have a picture of the last one I made let me find it LOL
It sounds good. I don't have a surefire way of guaranteeing a crisp, crunchy topping except for the recipe I tried that has some eggwhite in the crumble topping, so I'll give this a go.
But your Granny Smiths go to apple sauce? They're the apple I buy if I want the slices to keep their shape in the finished dish.
