“Baked Apples go back to my childhood. This isn't Mom's recipe, just one I picked up a long time ago and naturally it's been changed, morphed, and evolved over the years. My thanks to all of the people I've stolen bits and pieces from. The measure of ingredients is approximate to give you a scale to judge proportions by.”
