      8) I have to give this 5 stars... just for ease alone. I tagged this recipe out of curiousity as there were no previous reviewers, no photos and the chef herself hadn't even made this.... that being said, I cannot believe how terrific this turned out. I was really skeptical when putting it together only because it seemed like too much cake mix a top the amount of pie filling. Then, the butter.... I thought how in the world is this going to turn out. I put it in the microwave and walked away! In 9 minutes I had dessert. It came out browned even, like it had baked. Okay, but the test was when it was cut. After letting it set for 8 minutes I grabbed a spoon and dove in. It was like a crumb cake with apple pie on the bottom. I have to tell you, when it cooks, don't be surprised... but some of the apple filling comes to the top. I took a bite and now I can't wait to eat more. No need to add whip cream, this was sweet enough. This one goes into my *Favorites by Zaar* cookbook. It would be so easy to whip up when you have unexpected company or just fill like dessert and don't have a lot of time. YUMmers! Thanks Mami for sharing this one. (Made for Bevy Tag 10/08) ~V

      So delish!!! Made with sugar free apple pie filling which worked perfect. Also only used a half a stick of butter which was enough for us. Loved the nuts and coconut. Will add some dried cranberries on top of the apples and add some oats on top next time. Great, easy recipe. Thanks!!! Back to say that this reheats in the microwave very well on day 2. Everyone loved it.
