Very, very yummy. We actually used this as a side dish with dinner. I agree that one teaspoon of cinnamon instead of one tablespoon is better. And I just noticed the other reviewer's suggestion to put it in oatmeal...can't wait to try that in the morning! Thanks for the great recipe, Lauren!


This really did not turn out "syrupy". I let it cook for 15-20 min in hopes that more water would boil off to form a syrup. It never did. If I make this again, I'll just skip adding extra water because enough water is drawn out of the apples by the sugar. The apples were very good though - I cut down on cinnamon and added a bit of nutmeg.


Give this a try and you won't be disappointed! I served this atop the Buttermilk Pancakes II recipe and it was delicious! I used saigon cinnamon (a bit spicier cinnamon) and Granny Smith apples. I actually halved the recipe since I was just making enough for hubby and me. Other than that though, I followed exactly. Bravo, thanks for sharing Lauren!
