Reviews for Cinnamon Baked Apples
"this was so quick and easy to make. we love apples in our house and this is a great recipe. it reminded us of cracker barrels fried apples only these are baked and healthier. this is a keeper in our book"
"Really liked this, it was simple to make but honestly nothing out of the ordinary. Don't know whether I'd bother to make again - only because there are other more interesting recipes to try! But it was tasty, the apples were tender after 35 minutes and the sauce was very good - we had it as dessert with whipped cream."
