I found this recipe on I haven't tried it yet but it sounds really good. I'll be making it with skim milk. Substituting peaches or pears for the apple would be good too. Time is estimate.

I found this recipe in 'The Best of Relish Cookbook', made it this morning and came in here to add it to the website so as not to lose it. I was delighted to find it already here! I made this exactly as written, though I sliced the apples into bite-sized pieces so they spread out more evenly in the pan. I used fat-free, lactose-free milk. It puffed up and browned beautifully in exactly 15 minutes and I served it immediately so the brown sugar wouldn't cool and harden in the pan. It was absolutely delicious! Serves 4? husband and I ate the whole thing. I plan on keeping Granny Smith apples on hand always so I can whip this up's very quick and easy. Thanks for adding this Riverlivin!
