Old Fashioned Apple Chews

Updated on September 14, 2016
5 stars from 1 rating of Old Fashioned Apple Chews

I had forgotten all about apple chews until going through my list of old fashioned recipes. They are a sweet and chewy treat perfect for apple season. They take awhile to set but are fairly straight forward to actually cook. I hope you enjoy them, I like the chewy texture and sweet fruity taste.
