"@ Lynsin you are the only one that has negative comments about this, looks like everyone else has good things to say. And as the saying goes opinions are like azzholes everyone has one. To me this would be great for that one time of year through the Holidays to make."

"Wouldn't try this as good as it seems. Too much fat and cholesterol though buttermilk could probably be substituted for the cream and or my gosh the calories. From someone without cholesterol. LynsIn"

"This was delicious! Very easy to make too. I also got more shortcakes then what the recipe said. I had to taste one before serving it and it was so good by itself. My apples did get a little mushy. Does any one know what type of apple would work best for this recipe?"

MY REVIEW

"Very Good! The only change we made was to double the filling/apple mixture. Great dessert for a cool fall day! The shortcakes are very tender and wonderful served warm."
