Yum! I added a bit more applesauce for moisture and baked it as an oval loaf on the pan instead of cutting it into triangles. I also added about 1/2 tsp of italian herb blend. It was delicious!
These are super easy to make. I used chunky applesauce and extra sharp Vermont cheddar cheese. They are so delicious. I also added a couple teaspoons of Herbs de Provence and it made them extra savory. Would go great in the winter with tomato soup. I gave them to the staff and teachers at my son's school with crock pot apple butter! Yummy and lots of compliments.
