Great desert for the Fall, But...MARGARINE? Surely it's not on the SNAP food list! All those trans fats! Use real unsalted BUTTER or some good coconut oil. Or in a pinch some safflower oil. And try thin skinned apples like golden delicious to keep the fiber. Scrub well first if not organic or from your own tree.

Although leaving the peel on gave added nutrition it did not taste good or feel good to the palate. I would take off the peel next time and add flour to the topping.
