I used apple pie spice instead of cinnamon--I made no other changes. Not a bad apple butter, I liked the flavor that the maple syrup gave to the apple butter, I just think it could be a little better. I'd make this again but I'd play with the recipe a bit.



I used sugar instead of maple syrup and it worked fine for me. very quick, easy and tasty too



Didn't need to heat it quite as much as it said. Very basic recipe. Will definitely make again, will variate.
