This was very good. The hubby had fit about the price of the calvados but other then that amazing. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.

This is great. I don't know if the cream is supposed to give this effect like in my photo. I used heavy cream. It went down. I didn't heat the calvados and apricot brandy cause I did it only for 1 serving (for me). I didn't add sugar. Thanks Twissis. It was yummy!
