This recipe is way too sweet. I baked them at 250 degree for 30 minutes on each side and they turned out ok. They were very crispy but tasted like sugar. I probably won't be making these again.

The recipe looked very easy so I had to try! It was very easy to prepare but I baked it for 50 minutes and the crust was not done and the apples on the top were dry while those at the bottom were watery.
