  1. This is such a good, simple, and fun recipe for visiting Grammas. There is no better way to make memories with grandchildren than making something in the kitchen. I know I will be making ‘Apple Mouths’ with my grandson, Tyson, next time I go to Austin, TX. Thanks for the “kid/Gramma friendly” food ideas.
