I used apple pie spice instead of cinnamon--I made no other changes. Not a bad apple butter, I liked the flavor that the maple syrup gave to the apple butter, I just think it could be a little better. I'd make this again but I'd play with the recipe a bit.

Didn't need to heat it quite as much as it said. Very basic recipe. Will definitely make again, will variate.

I had high hopes this recipe would work because it was so simple, but it was just a mess! Didn't turn out, had to throw away.

Good, quick, easy, and tasty recipe. I don't really have the time to sit there and slow cook for 12 hours so this recipe worked great. However, I did not use the microwave. Just boiled the ingredients for 30 mins, threw it in the blender, than boiled for another 30 mins. I call it apple jutter, because its more like jelly than butter.

This recipe was pretty bad. It was too liquidy
