These are a great snack, side dish, dessert, breakfast...anything goes!! Another great way to use up apples that are past their prime. Simple, but different and very tasty, and kids love these, too. I think I practically lived on these when I was a kid...grandma made them for us all the time:) When served as a dessert, they are great with a dollop of whipped topping.
