    stormylee's Note:

    Tosca refers to a delicious, briefly boiled almond caramel topping that can be used to crown cakes, fruit cobblers and the like. Here it is combined with a yummy apple pie.

      This is a delightful pie - extremely tastey and the crunch of the almonds add a nice texture. This is a keeper for me. Thanks you, stormylee.

      Oh, stormylee! This apple pie is soooooooo delicious! Tiger just declared it to be his all time favourite apple pie! And mind you he's fussy! When I made it I expected the crust to be different, more the texture of a traditional apple pie. That's why I first was worried that I did something wrong or that the recipe would be faulty. But then I read in the instructions that you have to spread it into the pan and also your beautiful picture was helpful. I used 3 1/2 very small tart apples. The tartness worked well with the oh SO DELICIOUS tosca topping. This topping reminds me of squares or bars called Hummelschnitten. I've never made Hummelschnitten myself, but I do have a recipe that I will hopefully try soon and post if the bars/squares turn out well. Thank you again for a keeper!
