“These little delights are perfect to use up that last apple or two in the fruit bowl that no one is going to eat. These are a fast, easy, and wonderful snack or dessert treat, especially warm from the oven! I use whatever amount of apple I have, instead of sticking strictly with the one cup. Thanks to my friend Merilee who not only shared the recipe, but brought me a batch of cakelets with it years ago.”
