Top Review by Sydney Mike

Yet again, Lainey, a great recipe! I was going to start out with purchased chunky applesauce & go on from there, but then decided to do it all from scratch, & I'm glad I did! It's not only great eaten plain, but it makes a nice topping for oatmeal AND cottage cheese AND.... Thanks for posting this! [Tagged, made & reviewed for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag game]
