My friend Linda owns Steele's apple Orchard. She also has a book with recipes using apples. They sell Fresh Apple Cakes, Fried Apple Pies, dried apples,and many other items. This yummy recipe reminds me that in a few weeks her apples will be ready to harvest. McIntosh is my favorite to eat raw however I don't cull any good apples. As a child we had apple trees on the farm and I loved the story of Johnny Appleseed. As a child, I thought he must have traveled our farm planting those seed. Good childhood memories sure are a pleasant recall. Hope you enjoy this tasty and colorful dessert.
