"This is a very good recipe. But! don't cut your hand while cutting up the apples. Cuz, it'll make you forget to add the Brown Sugar!"

"This turned out wonderfully! I followed the recipe exactly and I served it at a BBQ dinner and it got great reviews. The topping was a great caramel brown. Next time, I might try decreasing the white sugar to 1/4 cup, as it seemed like a lot of sugar when I poured it over the apples."

"I just took it out of the oven and it's very runny. I used Gala apples--perhaps too juicy, or I should have added some cornstarch. I'll serve it to my guests anyway, but I am disappointed."
