Delicious apple slices baked in warm cinnamon goodness. It does not get more comforting than this! My grandma baked this all the time when I was little and I've been craving it ever since until I found this recipe.

11.1.16 Used Gala apples (what I had on hand), otherwise followed the recipe, and this turned out very well. Nothing not to like here;. Pure sweet fresh baked apples swimming in a delectable sauce, comfort food at its best. This is the type of recipe that will be passed down for generations. Read More

These apples are amazing!! I had one problem. The butter wouldn’t mix into the water/cornstarch mixture. I just ended up putting the small pieces of butter over the top of the apples in the dish. It still turned out delicious! Read More

It came out fantastic! I added more tapioca starch than it called for, but it turned the sauce almost caramel like. Delicious! Read More

Very good! I made mine GF by omitting the flour and doubled corn starch. I loved it with whipped cream! Would be good with pecans added. Read More

Instead of baking them I nuked them for 5 minutes. I'm waiting for them to cool off so I can put them into dough to make turnovers. Of course I won't be able to use all the liquid so I'll save it to pour on pancakes or French toast. Sorry, the app gave me problems trying to upload the photo. Read More

Easy & yummy! We served it with fresh whipped cream and it was a winner! Next time I made either add one more apple and/or cut the brown sugar back to 1/3 cup. It would be great over vanilla ice cream, but I would definitely cut the sugar back if serving that way. Read More

I used Gala apples and added 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. My husband said it was like eating apple pie without the crust. I'll definitely make this again. This would be a nice side dish for a holiday meal. Read More
