"Easy, quick and good! To save time we didn't peel the apples. Within minutes the house smelled great. As a volunteer food editor with Taste of Home I love preparing classic dishes that are great tasting but easy to put together."

"I cut this recipe down to 1 serving, but didn't adjust for time. Apples came out rubbery, and topping was hard. Flavor was still very good though. I will try again, but remember to change the cook time."
