Common Mistakes:

-Not peeling the apples: This step is important so that the apples cook evenly and don’t make the dish too watery.

-Not using enough sugar: The apples need enough sugar so that they are not too tart.

-Not using enough flour: The flour helps to absorb some of the moisture from the apples and prevents the dish from being too runny.
