Easy and delicious. I took this out of the oven, left for about 30 minutes, and when I returned home, it was gone! Thank goodness I tried a piece before I left. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I didn't have parchment paper and used a silpat under the dough. Consequently the pastry didn't crisp up under the apples as I would have liked. The flavor and ease of this dessert still warrants 4 stars and I will definitely make it again and see if it was my error that caused my less than perfect results. Here's hoping I can give it 5 stars next time.
