"Hot Baked Cinnamon Apples Recipe" I used 6 very large Melrose so I decreased the sugar to 1 cup. I cooked in the crockpot because I didn't have any room in the oven. I did 4 hours on low. When they were tender, I mixed in a teaspoon of cornstarch and water to thicken it a bit. I served with ham and it was a huge hit!!! The possibilities are endless!
