This is an old recipe from my Bon Appetit magazines. It is intended to be a brunch dish but it would make a nice change of pace anytime. The overnight chilling is not reflected in the cook or prep times.

I'm sorry, but this was a disappointment and waste of ingredients, time and energy (mine and the oven's). I did use regular rather than tart apples, but that shouldn't make that big of a difference. I was trying to use up some buttermilk I had in the fridge -- I guess I did.
