I was a bit leery about trying something that tried to combine cream and apples, but I wasn't displeased with the results. Unfortunately, this wasn't near creamy enough for my taste, despite using half & half instead of milk. I also don't have an apple peeler, so I just tossed in chunks. Now I realize that the softened apple is what helps thicken the sauce. Hopefully, now that I've tried things, I can get it right next time.
