I haven't tried this yet, but it sounds delicious and seeings as how it comes from TOH, I believe it to be a sure bet! Prep and cooking times don't include cooling periods.

This won the approval of my family and chef friend. I didn't have time to sprinkle the topping, this was outstanding without it. Did kick up the cooked apples with a pinch of cardamom and nutmeg. Drizzled a little real maple syrup over the apples too when they were done cooking. Will be making this again.
