“Just in time for Fall, this is the one recipe I HAVE to make every Fall. Don't let the large amount of ingredients. (Sometimes I speed things up by using 2 cans of apple pie filling instead of the apples, brown sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon.) It's great with hot cider. Adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream puts it over the top. =)”
