I got this recipe from a friend of mine and it comes out better than before. The brandy gives it a very nice aroma, and sometimes my hand goes a little heavy when i add it! It's a very simple recipe with amazing flavor. I prefer using honeycrisp apples for this recipe, fuji apples are fine too. And I usually have the apple and nuts soaking in the brandy while I am putting the rest of the ingredients together. Ingredients where you can adjust the amounts: brandy, apples, nuts.
