"Excellent dessert for the fall."

"This was a great combination of fruit.....I like another viewer do not like biscuit mix , so I used a topping from another recipe on this site...( Tennessee Peach pudding Recipe ). I did add flour to the fruit mixture though so it would absorb this liquid topping. It turned out a beautiful golden crust and so scrumcious tasting ! I will try the cinnamon steusel topping as another viewer did the next time."

"This is a great recipe. I altered it somewhat. Instead of sugar, I used Splenda in the fruit mix and added dried mango in as well. I changed out the Bisquick, which I don't like, for a box of Cinnamon Steusel. I sprinkled half the pack of dry cake mix over the top of the fruit and then all of the cinnamon/sugar packet. I then put small dices of butter over the top (an old girl scout trick). It turned out fabulous."

"A bit time consuming to peel and slice all the apples but no difficulty cooking. Two members of my family can't have processed sugar, so I used Equal. It was delicious with Blue Bunny sugar-free vanilla ice cream!"
