The most amazing dessert I ever made. Very easy to make and yet incredibly delicious with the most fascinating, crustiest, crispiest and like meringue. The inside is a gooey, sticky, delicious and with a buttery caramel favor. An apple dessert that will linger in your spirit and leave in your memory the best ever yet found rustic "FRENCH PATISSERIE" This dessert is mainly and surprisingly found in Charleston, South Carolina. In the eighteenth century the French HUGUENOTS Protestant came to settle in Charleston. It is also believed that the torte was also called Ozark Pudding.

    I really enjoy to garnish this rare not found and known torte but just by the connoisseur of the French Connection of Charleston South Carolina with 1 cup whipped cream that of course I would whip but what I do is that I add 1/3 cup of sour cream 1/3 cup of powdered sugar and whip until soft peaks.

    Do not worry when you will cut it's portions. They without a doubt will be lumpen and missahapen with much shards of crust but it is the authenticity of this FRENCH SPOONFUL OF OOZE.. PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO GIVE ME COMMENTS OF THIS UNIQUE RARELY FOUND KNOWN RENOWN ESQUISITE YET DELECTABLE RARE DELICATE FRENCH SWEET SOFT SMOOTH TORTE!
