Notes about this recipe

    Much lighter and more delicate than a heavy apple pie. People liked it but weren't raving about it like some of Ina's other desserts I've served (mocha ice box cake is one). I personally loved it.

    This is so easy and delicious. I like her way of slicing the apples; easy-peasy. I used Myer's Dark Rum in the Apricot Glaze and everyone loved it. Most people said they liked this better than apple pie!
