    I made as is and would tweak the next time. I did add 1 Tablespoon flour to apricots because I had some very juicy ones. I would add almond extract to the apricots next time and maybe some nuts to the topping.  -  28 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is such a nice, easy, and delicious recipe! I added about 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract and some flour to the apricots as one of the other members suggested. I also added cinnamon to the topping. Our house smelled fantastic! The fruit was soft and sweet and the crispy topping was a nice contrast with the fruit. We'll be using this recipe quite often in the future.  -  05 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious! I used GF all purpose flour and turned out great! Next time I will make a bit more crumble for the top as it barely covered my apricots as I used more than 4 cups because I needed to use up my remaining apricots  -  20 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
