This was FANTASTIC!! And so easy! I made as directed with only a few changes. I added more cinnamon (love it!), used Truvia instead of sugar, and used about half the almond extract (that's all I had) and EVERYONE loved!! It has been requested for Christmas dessert already...and it's only September! Made it with some delicious granny smith apples from our CSA. Thanks again!
I made this and took it to work. It was a huge hit and everyone asked for either more--or the recipe. I made it with 1/2 t almond flavoring since I am allergic to almonds. I also didn't use the yogurt--which would've probably put it over the top! Very easy to make. I probably won't peel the apples next time.
I made this the past weekend and it was easy and delicious. This is a Cooking Light recipe (so now the recipe source mystery is solved:)). We skipped the ice cream and had double portions with mimosas for breakfast! Thank you
