Mirjam-Thank you for a wonderful recipe and gift idea! I am making up baskets similar to what you descibed for neighbors, babysitters and as teacher presents. My kids also make cinnamon dough ornaments that we will include with the baskets--following the apple/cinnamon spice theme. Also, we will line the baskets with an old-fashioned apple print fabric. Thanks again!!

Just what I was looking for. Great recipe, great taste. I did add 1/4 tsp of ground ginger, very good.
