    Delicious when fresh from the oven. Received rave reviews from friends. Not as good reheated the next day. Used about 1/3 c maple syrup as the apples sweeten things up. A hint more cinnamon would be good.

    My only complaint is how long this takes to make, especially when I am hungry in the morning. But, my husband loves it and it is a special treat for us to have on a cool morning.
