    OMG! These are so delicious and sinful! I made these at the cottage last weekend for Dh and myself. The neighbors stopped over sniffing so we all had a delectable treat! My goodness this is soooooo simple to make from refrigerator staples. I used empire instead of grannysmith apples as that is what grows on our trees. MOM keep these recipes coming! I cannot believe how these tasted using biscuits. Who'd a thunk it? I plan to make these again and again as it is apple season here. I am drooling just writing the review. lol I also am going to try this recipe with the apple pie mix I froze to see how it adjusts with partially cooked apples. DH wants these to take to the office tomorrow so he is atually picking a few more apples for me today so I can make these for his Saturday staff at the office. I laughed and asked will hey really get some or re you just trying to get more and me smiled. I guess 2 batches are in order. YUMMY! Made for AUS/NZ Swap Sept 11

    What a lovely treat. I made two versions, with and without pecans for my dh. He is allergic to nuts. Quick, easy to make with great results. What's not to like. Thank you for sharing this recipe. :)

    What a wonderful treat! Easy to make and great presentation. Make sure you put the custard cups on a cookie sheet as specified - mine spilled over a bit. I couldn't resist serving this as a dessert, warm from the oven with some vanilla ice cream - outstanding! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
