I have been making this dessert since 1991. It is one of the most requested for Christmas dinner. It is very easy to prepare. It is from an old Pillsbury cookbook called Real Home Cooking. Hope you enjoy!

I put this recipe off for a day when I had some free time. Don't ask me why, because when I went to make it, I became aware of just how simple it really is! This is a unique and wonderful apple/almond delight. It looks like you bought it at a bakery. Made as directed but used Sunmaid fruit bits for the raisins. The crust was crumbly till I added the egg, then it became a dough, so I just pressed it into the pan. The vanilla yogurt and apricot really come thru in this dessert. Thanks for posting.
