Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I used Braeburn apples and they were so hard after cooking 45 minutes, that we had to use steak knives to cut them. Next time I'll cook them an extra 15-30 minutes so that they are tender throughout. Also, not sure why the recipe calls for so much apple juice, since it didn't reduce in cooking and had WAY more than enough to top each apple before serving.
I am not a big fan of raisins or walnuts so I just made them plain with a little extra cinnamoon. Yummo!
Absolutely great! My granddaughter said that her son did not like raisins and nuts and would never eat this. He ate it all up and asked for more! Little does she know but I have been giving him golden raisins and nuts on his whole grain cereal every day for months. If you don't start kids on junk they will learn to eat healthfully and like healthy foods. By the way he is only 2.
I substituted pecans for walnuts, did not have any raisins or juice and still it was so good mam wanted to slap daddy twice!
THESE ARE EASY AND FUN TO MAKE, ESPECIALLY WITH THE KIDS! THEY ARE EVEN MORE FUN TO EAT TOGETHER AS A FAMILY, AND HEALTHY TOO!
