I made a few changes but what an easy and comforting dish! I used my crockpot and just loaded it full of sliced apples ( I think I used 8-10), peels on, mixed in the other ingredients and then added about 1/4 cup of apple cider in place of the milk. I figured the 1/2 cup might be too much! I put it on high and in a few hours I had a fantastic dessert that the whole family loved! We ate it warm with some cool whip on top, since I didn't have any ice cream! I will make this again!

This was ok. Made it for my parents for a late Mother's Day dinner dessert...and it didn't turn out as well as I had expected. I don't know what I could have done just didn't do it for us. Thanks for the post anyway.

I followed the recipe's ingredients exactly, and the results were delicious! After peeling and cutting the apples, I put them in a large ziploc bag, added the spices, and shook the bag to coat the apples. This worked very well! I then added the remainder of the ingredients and shook them together before pouring them into the baking dish. It was super easy, and the apples were evenly coated!

I'm just 13 and i absolutely love to cook and bake. My family went apple picking this weekend and i wanted to make a dessert that was quick and sweet. I added some things to this recipe to make it even better. I sprinkled brown sugar on the apples before baking which gave them a gooey, sweeter coating and topped with granola. Sooo goood. Anybody can make this, please try it!

Pretty good! I upped the amount of cinnamon, and left out the other spices. I also omitted the raisins and nuts because I didn't have any on hand. I also added 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract - which turned out great. While baking, I covered it with foil to retain moisture, as other reviewers (Christy7795) suggested. All in all, I will make this again. Thanks for sharing!

My family really liked this recipe. I made just a couple of minor changes. I omitted the cloves, and added a few drops of vanilla extract to the milk before pouring it over the apples. I also put a few thin slices of stick butter on top of the apple mixture right before I put it in the oven. It turned out great! I'm sure I'll make this one again.

Absolutely YUMMY! Made it with Splenda in place of the sugar because I'm diabetic and my daughter is always on a diet. Used a handful of frozen cranberries for color and tart counterpoint. Makes a lovely dessert. This would be wonderful served hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting on top. It's a keeper!!

This is really good! It is so quick and easy to make. It is just like apple crisp without the topping. I didn't have raisins, but it was good with the walnuts. You could also use Craisins (dried cranberries); that would be good. I think next time I will also add some chopped sweet potato. This is great for anyone! Much easier than making apple crisp.
