Top Review by Pamela Joyce Ochsner

:) 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!
