“My mom made these when I was a little girl. We would love to help her and of course eat them afterward. Dust with powdered sugar, granulated sugar or cinnamon. Delicious!” - by Sue Brown

"this recipe is tasty, but the person who reviewed it and changed not only the ingredients but cooking method shouldn't comment on this recipe, it's not going to turn out correctly if you don't follow ..." See morethe recipe!!!"
"Yummy! My kids beg me to make these. The only thing I do different is I use a small scoop to make donut holes only. It's quick and easy with less mess. I have used flavored applesauce too. Raspbe..." See morerry and cinnamon are great. We've also dipped them in glaze. Thank your mom for the great recipe. I can guarantee this will be passed down in our family."
"Very tasty. I used allspice instead of clove, since that's what I had on hand. By the way, I agree with the poster who said it's unfair to dramatically change the recipe and then give a poor/mediocre ..." See morerating. The raw apple that poster added would completely change the texture of this recipe and would also change cooking time."
