Help with Apple Crisp

I have got company coming tonight and I found this recipe for Nutty Apple Crisp for dessert and one of the ingredients is rolled oats. I have got Quaker Quick 1 Minute Oats. Is it the same? Thanks.

Rolled oats are the longer cooking version. But for Apple crisp the quick oats will be fine. Go for it.

Yep, for this rcipe, quick rolled oats will work just fine. You are basically using the rolled oats as a textural filling agent that adds bulk to the crisp topping. It becomes crunchy as it interacts with the other topping ingredients, (i.e. fat, flour, sugar) under heat. I ovten omit the recipe and just wing it as you will get to know the feel of the raw crisp topping as you make it a few times. It's really pretty easy, and forgiving. Unlike cake, crisp toppings don't require exact measurements, which is a good thing. It allows you to play with the ingredients and tailor your topping to the filling underneath.
