  1. I'm very impressed with this simple, yet scrumptious dish. I make it with splenda (sugar substitute) to cut down on the carbs and it tastes great. A hit with everyone I've served it to. I've made it about 4 times now with granny's, fuji's, red delicious and braeburn apples and each time it's turned out well.
  2. Here's proof that sometimes less really is more. Very easy to make, this is the perfect dessert to finish a big, hearty meal, because it's so light and yet so full of flavor! I particularly liked that the topping stayed so crunchy - it was a nice contrast with the tender apples. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
  3. This is simply DELISH!!! I will be making this on a regular basis. Thank you for posting!
  4. This was so simple that at first I was not sure it would taste good but oh was I wrong. It is great and very easy to make. Will be making again and again!!
  5. Simply "down home" good.
