So as written, this is 4 stars. . .quite bland. I ended up doubling the fruit and I would suggest adding more sweetener as well. I also recommend using pumpkin pie spice and using a full tsp instead of the recommended 1/4 tsp of cardamom. I microwaved the squash, 2 halves at a time, in the microwave for 7 minutes which was perfect. Wanted to love this, but the apple flavors just didn't shine through (surprisingly enough).
