I didn't really care for it, but my kids inhaled it so it received 4 stars. Very easy to prepare though which is always good.
DElicious, I really wasn't sure about the tea. The results was yummy. I made it just like the recipe said, Except made it for 2. Used golden delicious apples, used both walnuts and raisins, YUMMY. This will now be our favorite baked apples recipe. Thank you Sharon.
