    Yes, butter is mentioned in both the ingredients and in the instructions—BTW, this recipe is a favorite of my family!

    NOTE : 1Stick COLD Butter is currently not listed in the ingredients. Butter is mentioned in the ingredients BUT not how much. Very good recipe . A staple in our holiday dessert line up. BUT your web sight needs some serious attention. If I search for apple Crisp for example, I do NOT want a 100 9X13 desserts in a 9x13 pan. I just want whatever I typed in.

    So easy and delicious! Plenty of cinnamon flavor. I cut this recipe in half because I didn't have enough apples on hand. Also, after reading a review that the apple filling was runny, I did add a couple tablespoons of flour to the apple mixture.

    So easy to make. Good for church socials, or family dinner. But be careful it's addictive!

    This was one of the best apple crisp recipes I've ever used. The apples were fresh picked and had the perfect tartness. My husband loves it! I highly recommend this recipe, quick and simple.
