SO VERY YUMMY, and easy to make. DH loved them, scarfed them up as soon as I could make them. Made them just like the recipe said, using golden delicious apples, used RUM in the batter and in cooking of the apples. I will definitely be making these again & again. Thank you Ellie for another delicious recipe.
