Easy Apple Crisp Recipe without Oats

This is the first time I have made an Apple Crisp and it turned out great! Most receipts called for quick cooking oats, alas, I had none, so I searched and found this oatless receipe. The only thing I changed was I added about 1/4 cup of granulated sugar to the apples before putting on the topping and I stirred in some dried strawberries with pecans into the topping mixture.
