Loved it ! The cinnamon, cloves and allspice MAKE this dish. I used Granny Smith apples and they were still fairly crunchy by the time the sauce was thick and it was a wonderful combination of flavours. Please see my rating system, a lovely 4 stars for a simple and flavourful dish. Thanks!

Oh My. I made this tonight for dessert. I only had 2 apples, so I cut the recipe in half. As I was peeling one of the apples, I realized that it was rotting, so that left me with one apple. Well, by that point I was committed to making this, so I did it anyway. I had lots of sauce, and just enough apple to feed the family. I served this over vanilla ice cream. It was great. I would definitely recommend thin apple slices. Other than that, I will be making this again. I can't wait!

Umm.....holy #^&@# this is ridiculously good. It is spot-on for comstock apple-pie filling sauce (I love this stuff), but the quality is as if you were to order it at a 5-star restaurant. I combined this with my grandmother's old cinnamon doughnut recipe to use as a base/crust. I then made a very traditional streusel topping of (1C Flour + 1C Brown Sugar + 5TB Shortening +2tsp cinnamon +1 tsp nutmeg). Baked it for maybe 15M to get it crispy I then added 2 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream and drizzled some of the left over-sauce (There is plenty, as the other reviewers said.) Needless to say, it was a A+ material for sure.
