I've tasted this recipe many times. The apples are great over ice cream or as a topping for french toast or pancakes. I am planning on trying to make it this fall.

I just made this and it is boiling as I type this. I tasted the filling and it is fantastic. I made this to give as Christmas presents with a homemade mix for a cobbler, and a homemade apple candle. I WILL be ready for Christmas this year (for once). Thank You so much for posting such a great recipe!
