Haven't baked with the filling yet, but tastes great! I used only 2 1/2 cups of sugar, added 1/2 cup sugar and extra cinnamon and nutmeg as recommended. This is the second time I've made it. The first time was not in a wide-mouth jar. I didn't "cram" the apples in and ended up with apples on top and syrup on bottom. Next time I used wide-mouth jars, packed the jars tightly with apples, then poured the hot syrup in. At first I thought the syrup was too thick, but by the time I filled all the jars the syrup in the first ones had made its way down the jars. Just to see what I would get, I saved the peels and cores and made applesauce with them. I used the extra syrup for the applesauce spice and jarred it as well!
