I'm giving this four stars because the flavor was delicious; very subtle. It reminded me of homemade apple pie filling, without the chunks! The rest of my family love their fruit syrups, so weren't as excited about it and gave it three stars...But, since we tried it on pancakes, my 6-year old said she'd be willing to try it again on french toast like the recipe mentioned!

So easy and so good!!! It was done in just minutes. Made it to go with gingerbread pancakes, but ran to the store for some apple pie and vanilla ice cream for dessert tonite!

delicious! I made it alongside this caramel sauce ( and it was even more popular, which is saying something. It was my boyfriend's birthday and he loves caramel apple flavors, so I used it along with the caramel as a topping for pancakes, and I also added it, along with the caramel, to this milkshake recipe ( to make caramel apple milkshakes.
