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.

"Sinfully delicious! But mine came out too runny and instantly made our French toast soggy. Next time I'll try sauteing the apples first in attempt to get some of the water out."
