  4. Cook until all apple bits are soft and the sauce has formed.
  5. Serve and sprinkle with cinnamon.
    • Can be refrigerated or frozen.

The apples can be sprinkled with cinnamon before placing the rolls on top. You can add a few small pats of butter to the apples as well.

This recipe sounds good. I never liked apple pies till last year. I'm still not sure what caused the change.

Apple pie - what a tradition. My husband prefers Dutch apple pie (crumb topping is a must), and I have discovered a recipe for custard apple pie that has become my favorite! My mom also makes an applesauce pie that is mellow and comforting.

Kat07! My Mom called it apple compote when it was still chunky. When my kids were young we called it 'triple whammy apple sauce'. Each of us liked our apple sauce different. I like mine chuncky but no sugar, my daughters liked theirs smooth and sweet, and my son smooth,sweet with cinnamon. My trick is to use different types of apples. Gala or Granny Smith apples don't mush up too much but empire and ida apples totally 'mushify'. Loved your HUB

Zsuzsy - I cook the Granny Smith apples until they do turn to mush!  (It takes a while, but totally worth it!!!)  There is nothing in the world like homemade apple sauce.

Jennifer, I love the fried apples too. Great because you can leave the peels on and they get soft in the pan. My mom makes them with a little bacon grease, it adds a punch of flavor!
