We have loved this way of cooking apples for years! Don’t hesitate to use any tart apple! When we make it for breakfast we use half bacon grease. We do reduce the sugar a little and sometimes use brown sugar. Soo good!!

I have literally made it today and it tastes incredible! It reminds me of the apples in an apple crumble, sweet but not too sweet! Enjoyed it very much, and it was such an easy make!

Very nice. Not too sweet but sweet enough to enjoy it. Easy to make and I’m very happy of this recipe. Well done

Terrific basic recipe. Don't be afraid to toss in dried cranberries, diced dried prunes and dried pineapple. I did. Reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup but could have omitted it entirely with the added fruits. Still it wasn't too sweet and had amazing taste and texture.

great tasting and simple preparation -- I left the peels on and it was fantastic. Not sure why you would bother commenting on a dish you took the time to find and then not follow the basic recipe. The best part of it is not having to peel the apples-- you needed someone to tell you to put butter, sugar and cinnamon on apples, but you felt confident in straying with the peeling...

I made this for a dessert for our dinner tonight, or so I thought. The guys all used it over their cornbread. It was a hit either way. I made quick time by using my apple corer/peeler/slicer. Thanks for sharing it.
