Apple Nut Hotcakes

Meet the Cook: Not only are these an old family favorite, they're a neighborhood favorite as well. We have several bachelor neighbors who all rave about them. My husband (who built an addition on our house to hold all of my cookbooks!) and I have three grown children and one grandchild. -Barbara Nowakowski, North Tonawanda, New York
