    Scrumptious. The textures of the sauteed fresh apples with the dried apples...and the complementary flavors of fresh and candied ginger are absolutely outstanding. I would give this many more than 5 stars if only I could.

    This is sooo good. My DH loved it. I had everything on hand, except the candied ginger. It comes together so fast. Excellent. Thanks! Made and reviewed for Fall 2007 PAC.

    Oh My this is wonderful. I made just as stated and it was great. I love the texture the dried apples gave it and the flavor of the gingersnaps went great with the apples.

    I was pleased with the way this dessert came together, & I like the taste of the apples & ginger cookies AND the yogurt! I was able to top it all off with some coarsely broken fresh ginger cookies that a neighbor brought over, & that added a nice touch! Thanks, yet again, for a great recipe!


I'm not as active here anymore, but you can find me playing at the new I'm not a great photographer, but I love to take food photos with Freddy Cat to bring a smile to people's day. I love to cook and share good food with other people. I have a very large collection of cookbooks. I used to enjoy being able to look up recipes on Zaar by ingredients I had on hand. I miss the Zaar tag game community. Everyone was so nice, and it was super fun. Ah, the good ol' days.
