  • “Yummmmm!! I have loved baked apples since I was a little girl. These were the best, Bergy. Soft and tender with a totally delicious filling and sauce. We had these for dessert but I agree, they would be nice for breakfast. I prefer mine warm, without any cream. Just lovely. Thanks.”

  • “Thanks Bergy!These apples are excellent and smell so good when cooking…they are a perfect baked apple.”

  • “Excellent!I used 4 fairly small gala apples for a half recipe & a covered casserole dish. Thank you for sharing this keeper of a recipe!”
