I really enjoyed this recipe, as described, made 12 servings, very tasty... think I might have put a bit more cinnamon in but I adore cinnamon so I guess thats to each persons taste! Thanks for a lovely recipe... I am a weight watcher so it was great to get a low fat recipe which was actually enjoyable!

They weren't flavorful at all and they had a really chewy outer layer on them that wasn't good.

We thought these were quite good. I did make one small change--I used 3/4 c oatmeal (soaked in the milk for a few minutes) and 3/4 c ap flour. I just like the texture and fiber you get from oatmeal. I also left the peel on the apple for fiber. Finally, I sprinkled the tops with a very little bit of cinnamon sugar after they came out of the oven. These are not super sweet, but were just sweet enough for our tastes. DH ate 7, so they must be a keeper :). Thanks, Chris!
