"I made 5 TOH dessert recipes for a big Army potluck we hosted and this was a crowd favorite. People loved the apple and peanut butter combo. I will make again for sure. I enjoy making trifles, and this one is a bit out of the ordinary."

"This is an okay recipe. I did not go home with any empty dish. If made again I would omit the cinnamon from the topping. I thought it overpowered the other flavors."

"I made this for a luncheon and got wonderful reviews. I made sure everyone knew that it contained peanut butter as someone present might have food allergies. It is indeed delicious!"
