I loved the flavor and presentation. It was a lovely apple-pie effect with the nuts. Perfect. They do take a bit of time to prepare, but it would work beautifully if you made them and steamed them the day before your special dinner and then reheated them right before serving. I had them for an after dinner treat and then microwaved 2 for 1 minute and ate them for breakfast! Everyone loved the presentation. I did think the apple filling was a bit watery and might try not using any of the water. The apples exude quite a bit of liquid as they cook, so I will melt the butter and cook them gently with the lid on.
