Love it. But there is a typo in the recipe. They left out the sugar in the paragraph about the Apple Filling. Good thing I re-read it. This is a wonderful dessert. However I did tweak it a bit. Since I didn't have whole wheat flour I used only King Arthur AP flour and it still was wonderful. And since I didn't have apple brandy I just used regular brandy (good brandy). This really is great using the Granny Smiths. Next time I might throw in a Honey Crisp and/or Macoun apple into the mix. Experiment a bit. :-) No matter what, trust me, this is a wonderful recipe and I have shared it with all my Facebook friends too!
