They were awesome!! My husband loved them and they taste just like they do in the store. Thank you for this recipe. I would totally recommend it to everyone!! Mel F.
My kids loved these and no one could tell there was any grated apple in them. Thanks for the recipe.
This is soooo good! Made exactly as directed, except used Braeburns and added about 12 C chopped walnuts. No need to wait for Xmas. Served with honey butter; what a delightful treat with coffee!
