:) I ran out of salt, low on sour cream, short of brown sugar, so: I used a cup of half and half soured with vinegar, 3/4 of a cup of brown sugar, and used an extra egg, which I balanced out with another cup of chopped apples. I didn't peel them, either: And it was fabulous.. KelBel's right, the smell's insanely delicious! Much appreciated!

This was lovely although I did cut back on the sugar slightly.

These smelled insanely delicious while baking, and tasted awesome. I used pecans instead of walnuts, butter flavored crisco, and macintosh apples. Baked in a 9x9 pan for 1 hour.
