This was very good and will be making an appearance throughout the holidays.

Served this at Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I sprinkled walnuts on top for “presentation”. Ate it with breakfast the next day. Definitely making it again soon.

This was an excellent accompaniment to baked chicken! I did alter the recipe by adding a teaspoon of ginger and halving the cinnamon to suit my family's palate. I will be making this again!

My daughter and I enjoyed this, my husband and son not so much.
