Cooking apples have a sharper flavour which is balanced by honey in this recipe.  if you use eating apples you might want to leave out the honey.

This (although w/out the oats) has been a recipe standard in my family for generations. Adding in the oats--> wonderful.
Here in Louisiana (southern US) we substitute brown cane sugar for the honey.
