For years, we enjoyed baked cinnamon apples at Christmas when my great-grandmother made them. When she passed away, no one could find the recipe. I eventually came across this stovetop version and have continued her tradition. —Angie Marquart, Mt. Gilead, Ohio

"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."
