"This recipe was inspired by mliss29's Mushroom Puff Pasties (A.k.a. Footballs) (which was greatly enjoyed by the DS's recreation group) but put a sweet flavour to it instead of savoury. Please note if you do like it sweet then certainly add the sugar for without it is just the flavour of your fruit and the spices."

"This recipe was super easy, but the filling was just okay for me. I found it too dry and not sweet enough."
"Well I have to say that i had higher expectations for this recipe. I would have rather it been a little sweeter. As the sugar was optional I didn't add it cuz I was afraid it was going to be sweet. But I wish I had added it :( My daughter too was a bit more sweetness, she topped it with crispy ice=cream topping and whipped cream. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag game."
"I loved this recipe. It was so quick and easy to throw together. Everyone that tried them...loved them. I ground my 3 fresh cloves and didn't find them over powering. The pastry was crisp and the apple filling tart and tender. I did add an additional apple, as we prefer alot of fruit. I will make these again and again. Thanks for sharing I'mPat ."
"Ehhh... think it was the cloves that were too overpowering. Made it taste like medicine. Theres a recipe with biscuits that is better on here: Recipe #301054 but that's only my preference. Sorry - maybe will try again by decreasing the amount of cloves."
"I reduced this down to 4 servings using 1 granny smith apple and 2 cloves. I also added a dash of sugar to the pot while cooking, and sprinkled sugar and cinammon on top before baking. This is a very light brunch item but it needs more tweeking for sweeteness (raisins perhaps?) and more cinammon to bring out additional flavor. Also, I think adding an small hole on top of the pastries prior to baking would help it not deflate as much. Overall, a nice recipe just needing some minor adjustments."
