    Ugly looking, but very tasty! I used homemade chunky applesauce that had been simmered with cinnamon sticks (more flavor), and I also added about 3 or Tbls of chopped candied ginger. Nice and moist.  -  21 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    when I copied this recipe, I didn't realize there was only pumpkin pie spice and no pumpkin, so I was bummed b/c I found it under pumpkin recipes.... But it was soooo good. A little dry, maybe b/c I used reduced fat busquick? Also wasn't firm enough to knead, maybe for the same reason. However, I put it in my cool scone pan, baked it, then sliced them in half and filled with....NUTELLA! Fantastic! thank you!  -  21 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Not sweet enough for my taste, and a bit dry. I didn't serve it with ice cream--but I think that would help balance it more.  -  23 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
