This is the kind of shortcake we made for all fruit, nix the cinnamon for, say, strawberry shortcake. I like it a lot better than the sponge cake type, I like the added crunch. When the filling is very hot, pour a little milk or cream over it, or top with whipped cream. Very good!

I agree with Mortinka. I want to know what to expect when I make a recipe not hear about how I shouldn't be making it because it's unhealthy or that "it sounds good" because that's why I plan on making it. Enough ranting, I did make this and it was average. The shortcakes cooked up fine, I got nine using 1/4 c. to measure. I used Braeburn apples and they took FOREVER to soften and were sliced very thinly. I finally gave up and threw a lid on the pan and steamed them. Flavor was good but nothing overly special.

Can't understand why people have to put their 2 cents worth in without making the recipe.

I made this exactly as listed and it was very, very good.

The shortcake is soft, moist and good and the apple filling is very good.

So VERY, VERY GOOD :>)

I made this over the weekend as written for my daughter and 2 granddaughters. They loved it! The recipe was passed on to her. Thank you. Easy and a great dessert.
