“This is from a cookbook my Grandma gave me when I was 11 . I have no idea what the name of the book is since it lost its cover years ago. For years I have wanted to make this but always forget to buy the cinnamon hearts at Valentines but this year I bought FOUR lage bags to put away and finally made this. We loved it . I crushed some of the hearts and left some whole . Next time they will all be left whole . I think any hard cinnamon candies would work. I can't remember how many cups the five apple came to but I usually add more anyway I like a nice plump pie ( added extra ingredients accordingly) The orignal recipe had no timings but I think I cooked it for about 45 minutes. My oven is really fickle right now so one day it might burn and the next day take forever LOL”
