I got this recipe out of a Southern Living Magazine and found it to be a BIG success with my 13 year old son, my husband, brother, & my Dad. No one wanted to share this! I did tweek the recipe just a bit though and added more apples and had to add cinnamon to it as well. I can't make something with apples and not add cinnamon to it! I think the cinnamon really made it taste even better! You will definately be a winner with this recipe!
