    These are great, but are crumbly. Brought them to a teacher's lunch and they gobbled them up!

    Yummy! We had 4 medium apples to use up which ended up meaning we raised the yield of the recipe 1/2 as that gave us 4.5 cups of sliced apples. Will make this again! Also used forks in place of a pastry cutter and added extra ground cloves.
