This was a tasty recipe. I guess I had traditional apple pie on my mind when I saw this recipe. The dough was very soft and luscious to work with and crisped up nicely fresh from the oven; although after sitting overnight, the crust atop the apples became a bit gooey and soft. The apple filling was more like an apple sauce than pie filling. I added 2 tbs. flour in order for the filling to set enough to cut into nice triangular slices. Overall a nice idea but not quite what we expected. I think I'd like to make this again except next time, I'll press the dough into a cake pan, pour in the uncooked pie filling, crumble on the topping and then bake for 45-60 minutes. Thanks for sharing! (Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #37)
My mom makes the same thing but she turns them into bars. Same spongy dough and the same way she prepares the apples too. When I took some over she said :"How did you get my recipe?" I haven't made this before as I rather asked my mom to make it, now I'm glad I can bake it too for my girls. DD no.1 is a big fan of this!
