Easy to make, and Charlotte J's instructions were so easy to follow for an occasional baker like me. I used butter, and made this in order to make Charlotte J’s Apfel Kuchen Recipe #40270. SO worth the effort: scrumptious! And I'm sure it would have passed my German grandmother's taste test! Thank you, Charlotte J!
