These are great! Best served right away so that they are still very warm. I like to use a tart apple to add a bit of flavor. They are wonderful served with maple syrup for dipping, or lightly dusted with powdered sugar, or cinnamon and sugar.

The DM, DS and myself have thoroughly enjoyed this as an afternoon treat which bought back memories of doing similar with fresh pineapple rings but I must admit to preferring the tartiness of the granny smith apples to the pineapples with just a touch of sweetness from the icing sugar. Thank you *Alia*. Made for Newest ZAAR Tag 2008.
