    Yummy! We love baked apples and this has all the flavor of a baked apple in a mere 6 minutes. Was planning to serve over frozen yogurt, but after a big dinner we just eat plain in a bowl and Loved it. This would also be good on pancakes or over ice cream. Thanks so much for the great post.

    This was a great filling for crepes for dessert tonight. I can't wait to eat the leftovers for breakfast :)

    I never thought something so simple could taste so great. My husband and I loved this. I can't wait to make this again for the rest of my family!

    What an easy treat to make, & so tasty, too! I followed the directions right down the line & the result was WONDERFUL, especially when served over some frozen peach yogurt! Can you imagine how long it would have taken Grandma to make this, way back when! Thanks for sharing your great recipe! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #16]

    I'm not going to star this review because I feel that I did this recipe a real dis-service by being to cheap to buy the ask for bags. I used a ceramic dish that I tightly covered with Press and Seal wrap and punched 6 holes in the top of. I let it go for the 6 mins in the micro while I made pancakes. The aroma was incredible and had the whole downstairs smelling of apple and cinnamon. The trouble came when I opened the micro to find that the tightly sealed wrap had been steamed open and the liquid that had been made had bubbled out of the dish entirely. Now while the apples and nuts were fine (I used pecans as I'm out of walnuts) the cherries had become very hard and almost inedible with the lack of moisture. I think this would be really wonderful made with the bag as the recipe says. Also, I should mention that I used 3/4 tsp of Splenda Brown (I made one serving) and that made it plenty sweet. Made for Photo Tag.


<p>First, I'd like thank everyone who reviews my recipes. I can't thank each of you personally although I try. <br /><br />I Live in central Virginia, 5 miles from where I grew up, w/ my Husband of 17 years and my beautiful daughter. She is 10 and is the joy of my life. We waited for a long time to be blessed with a child and it is the best thing I've ever done. Be a mother. <br /><br />I love to cook. We eat very healthy, after a life altering experience at 31 I've been on a journey to be healthy and lose weight.&nbsp; I've lost 50 lbs and have kept most all of it off for the last 9 years. There are always fluxs, durring stressful times, but I've mananged to keep most of the weight off.&nbsp; My best advice to anyone trying to lose weight is to remember that it didn't get there overnight and it won't come off overnight. I've never said I was on a diet. It is a lifestyle.</p> <p>When Zaar first changed to Food I took a short hiatus. I was going thru a very hard time in life and was completely unmotivated to do anything and thus gave up my hosting duties on Holiday Tag.&nbsp; But now with a new perspective I'm hoping to get back to cooking and tagging.</p> <p><br /><br />Things I've participated in..... <br /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=/ alt= /><img src= border=0 alt=PAC /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br />And in honor of my mother and in rememberence of my sister in law. <br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
