I love making this treat for friends during the peak of apple season. I plan a quick soup and bread meal, so we can get right to the dessert!—Libby Walp, Chicago, Illinois

Dear Bleugerman.....you might want to put on some specs and take a third look :)

MY REVIEW

I had to take a second look at this recipe because I thought I made a mistake. Why does the recipe list 1/2 tsp cardamom and then 1/4 tsp cardamom? In the directions it does not mention using it two ways. So what is the right amount to use? I think it sounds delicious and I would really like to make it.

Delicious recipe. A real crowd pleaser. I used plain whipped cream but I'm sure it would be even better with the almond cream.

Made this for dessert today. Very good. I didn't have the cream so had it plain. I did not use the slow cooker.... Just baked it in the oven. I should have covered the top with foil, but still enjoyed to . I made no changes to the recipe. Will make this again.
