I used 2 Macintosh apples, 1/4 cup of the brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of the lemon water and 1/4 t. cinnamon. I agree with the other reviewer that it was too much liquid. I would use only 1 tablespoon of the lemon water next time. That being said, these are really good scalloped apples and I ate them on top of oatmeal.

Very good, although there was too much liquid so it didn't thicken. I added a handful of raisins. Yummy!
