"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."

"Absolutely delicious...perfect for a cold winter day. I used granny smith apples because I enjoy the tart taste. The only thing I did differently was to use whipped cream that I got from another recipe on this site. It is super simple....1 cup of heavy cream and 4 1/2 tsp of instant vanilla pudding....use kitchen aid mixer with whisk attachment and by the time you serve up your Apple Betty, the whipped cream is ready...De-Lish"

"I have made this twice already and it's turned out so delicious. This is a keeper for sure. I'm glad that it can be cooked in a slow cooker as I don't always have the time to cook on a stove. Thanks for the great recipe!"

"I was a little apprehensive when I realized how long this had to cook for. After getting everything prepared and in a pot, it was perfect timing for cleaning house. The family had it for dessert and loved it. The only suggestion we had was adding some pecans for some crunch. Thank you again, this will be something I make again :)"
