When I received my KitchenAid stand mixer for Christmas in 2000, I was so thrilled. I made this recipe for the first time; and it was from a magazine that I had just read. I don't remember which magazine it was.

We loved this for breakfast on the holiday, and it would be delicious for dessert any time!
This calls for a jar of fried apples, and a jar of caramel sauce.
