Recipe by Karen From Colorado

I found this recipe in a cookbook called Taste of Home 2001. I must give the credit to the recipe's owner however. Her name is Bobbi Liston in Arlington, TX.(her name is published in the cookbook as the owner) Posted as a recipe request in our forum here.

It takes a really good recipe to get me to part with my hoard of red hots that I brought back from my last trip to the States. This is one of those recipes. I didn't change a thing. Every time I opened the oven to baste the apples the kids kept asking, "What is that wonderful smell?" Thanks for posting this, Karen!
