Reviews for Apple Betty with Almond Cream
"We added a touch of tangerine zest to the recipe! Great addition!!! :) second time making in two days!!! :) yum!!!"
"Dear Bleugerman.....you might want to put on some specs and take a third look :)"
"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."
