I have made this recipe at least a dozen times. I wish I were exaggerating, but it never fails me so I just keep coming back to it. Simple yet powerful. The one thing I don't like about this recipe is that it doesn't say whether you add the baking soda before or after splitting the dry mixture. I've done it both ways and it turns out fine regardless; it was just a bit confusing the first time I baked this.
Lovely recipe. Makes a nice cookie-like bottom. I used less sugar though and it was more then sweet enough. Next time, I'm trying it with other fruits, maybe peaches, blueberries, or adding some raisins to the apples.
