Maple Apple Topping Recipe
I discovered this sweet topping when I had an abundance of apples to use up. It's a great alternative to bottled syrup. My family enjoys the tender apples and crunchy nuts over waffles, but the topping is also wonderful over sliced of pound cake or scoops of vanilla ice cream.
