Reviews for Cinnamon Candied Apples
"Yum. For my mom's birthday. 2002"
"I love this recipe! At Christmas my grandma would be frisked at the door for her "rose apples" as she called them. One year she forgot to bring them (she left them at home) and we teased her that all she would get for Christmas was a chunk of coal."
"I too was brought up eating these for Christmas & am glad I found this nostalgic recipe! Nice side dish!"
