    Great recipe, so simple and great on ice cream or alone. I took other people's suggestions and added 1 t. vanilla, only 1 t. cornstarch and nutmeg.  -  13 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Simply divine! So good and so easy you'd be tempted to make this every day! Ya just gotta love it when a few ingredients that you have on hand come together to create something so delicious. I did throw in a bit of vanilla for good measure and used Granny Smith Apples that I had on hand. I opted to use this as a pancake topping, but this has so many possibilites...side dish for pork or ham, over french toast or oatmeal, over top ice cream or pound cake or just all by itself!  -  05 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yum! These were delicious and the entire family loved them. I used what I had on hand... half red delicious and half granny smith and added a bit more cinnamon since we love it. I cooked them a little longer since my kids like them tender. We served them over the Good Old Fashioned Pancakes recipe that is also on this site. The combination made a heavenly breakfast. We will definitely be making these on a regular basis and yes, they did remind us of the apples at Boston Market. Thank you for sharing Jenny!  -  01 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
