Apple Squares
This recipe was wonderful! I tasty way to use extra apples. I am only giving this 4 stars because I made two batches of these and both were a little dry for my taste. My first batch I followed the recipe exactly, and those were considerably more moist than the second batch. On my second batch I did not have any nuts in the house, so I substituted the same amount of old-fashioned oats in its place. And I drizzled some honey over the top before baking in addition to the cinnamon and sugar. Those bars were more cake-like and much more dry. I ended up glazing both batches with a simple powdered sugar glaze to moisten them up. They were delicious! I will be making these again, that's for sure!

All-Day Apple Butter
I can't say enough great things about this recipe. This was my first try at making apple butter and I couldn't ask for an easier recipe to follow. I used less sugar like other reviews had suggested and ended up using 1 cup brown and 1 cup white sugar. I double the amount of cloves because it's one of my favorites, and also used 2 heaping teaspoons of cinnamon. Not too sweet, not too spicy... Just pure perfection! I filled my 5-quart slow cooker to the brim with the chopped apples and used a fork to press down the sugar mixture before putting the lid on. After 11 hours had passed I transferred the apples to a blender in batches and pureed the butter until smooth. I then returned the puree to the slow cooker with the lid off for another 1 1/2 hours. The batch took a total of 12 1/2 hours and yielded an exact 8 cups of butter. I have processed it all in a water bath and they are sealed and ready for the holidays! Thank you Terri for this amazing recipe! It will be used again and again!
