I don't know why I haven't rated this earlier, it was the most amazing dessert! We all loved it. It was quite simple to prepare and looked like I had spent hours in the kitchen, so that was an added bonus. I used a sweet apple wine and sprinkled cinnamon over it all as we love it. Thanks for a terrific, decadent dessert Elly :)
