“I adopted this recipe from the RecipeZaar account in Feb. 2005, and made it for the first time in August 2006. I left out the dates, because I don't really enjoy them, and the lemon juice b/c I forgot it, and these turned out flavorful and just delicious. I scaled the recipe down to two apples easily, and when I served them, I drizzled them with the sauce that collects in the bottom of the pan. A great, low-calorie treat. :)”
