Hubby, daughter and I polished off this dessert for dinner!! It had a great flavour, the apricots, apples, brandy, butter, brown sugar yummy! I used peach Schnapps to replace the brandy, it was great!! I will make this again, next time I will sprinkle a little white sugar over the apples so it will be a little more juicy, that was the only comment from DD and DH. I served it with whipping cream, it would be nice with ice cream too. It did take about 30 minutes for my apples to soften. A great little recipe Evelyn.
