Please provide the reason why you think this review is inappropriate.
I read the reviews before making it and reduced the sugar to 2 cups total . I also used half brown half white sugar as someone suggested. I only used Fuji apples and it turned out ok. Cranberries were a good addition. Instead of almonds I added walnuts on top and I thought that was a good addition especially when served with French vanilla ice-cream. I have to agree with most reviews that this recipe should not be in "Easy" category. Prep took a little bit more than an hour. Overall, it is worth making it, especially if you have some apples you need to get rid of.

I made this dish for a Super Bowl party and got rave reviews. I didn't have nutmeg, so I used a little less ground ginger in it's place. People have been demanding that I make it again.

I have three major complaints about this recipe. Firstly, it took way longer than specified to prepare, secondly, the apples did not create the juice in the fridge as described, and thirldy and most of all, it is way too sweet. So much so, I found it inedible for my taste. Maybe cutting it with some ice cream might be a good idea. Otherwise, it is a heatburn waiting to happen.I even tried adding more apples to cut it, but to no avail. I would make it again, only if I cut the sugar in half. I would also recommend dithing the almonds..it was just a hassle.

This recipe was way too sweet. I got a case of pears from Harry and David and used 1/2 of it to make this recipe. I ended up throwing it away because noone would could eat it because it was so sweet. My 3 year old even refused it. Very disappointing.

Cut this recipe in half, use 1/2 brown sugar over all 'white' and you'll be in for a treat.

The cobbled part became more of a cake like substance and wasn't very good
This was easy to make. I listened to those that complained of over-sweetness and cut the sugar that the apples marinate in to 1/4 cup, keeping the dough proportions the same. Making the crust in discs was a unique approach that created a perfectly distributed topping. I loved the way the crust tasted like a soft shortbread, buttery and good. This was a nice change from my usual apple crisp.

I tried this out for a potluck and it was really delicious. The cranberries could be omitted if you wanted sweet without a bit of tart.

I made this dish because I had to find something quick to do with my 5lb of granny smith apples. It turned out great. I did cut back on the sugar once I read the reviews but it was a crowd pleaser. I only made it with the granny smith and it really worked well.

I especially enjoyed the crust. The total cobbler was very delicious.
It did take longer than 20 min, to prepare, but the end result was fantastic!
By the way, what has happened to Warren Brown? I miss seeing his sweet show with current episodes, not reruns.
