Sub. for the NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Fla

by E. Em , Acme, PA on Jul. 2010

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!

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

by e. ellen , Hurleyville, NY on Mar. 2009

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.

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!

by J. Jackie , TORREY, UT on Oct. 2007

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.
