Serve this warm dish with ice cream for dessert. My mother game me the recipe for the cinnamony apple delight. Simmering it in a slow cooker fills the house with a wonderful aroma. —Lisa Roessner, Fort Recovery, Ohio

"I used Gala apples and the sauce turned wonderful. My husband and I both are diabetic and it is a great snack for us. peg51"

"I would love to hear what different types of apples people have used in this recipe. I used McIntosh because they are good for applesauce and we were using tart apples for a different recipe but I am not sure it turned out as good."

"Made it for Thanksgiving with requests for a repeat for Christmas dinner! Tasted great hot and cold. I did use 1/2 cup sugar, Fuji apples, and added a 1/2 teas vanilla. So easy to make."

"I just made this with freshly picked apples and it is outstanding! I actually liked it even better cold the next day rather than hot! Preparation was simple- although it took me way longer then 5 minutes to peel and slice 10 large apples. Worth the bit of effort! Have fall party in a few weeks and will definitely be making this for something a little different for a pot-lock."
