This rich, creamy torte has always been one of my favorite autumn desserts. Mom uses the freshest apples from a local orchard and bakes this treat until the apples are crisp-tender. It tastes as good as it looks. -Alyson Armstrong, Parkersburg, West Virginia

"This is always such a hit when I make it for someone. Definitely a fall favorite. I'm wondering if it is possible to freeze this at all. Someone asked me to make it for them for their Thanksgiving dinner and since I will be busy getting things together for my own dinner, I was wondering if I could make it a couple days before. Thanks for the recipe"

"I prepared this recipe for the first time on 5/1/14! This definitely is a keeper for me to use time and again! For filling: I did use 1/2 cup sugar & I used 1 tsp. vanilla extract instead of the original amount of 1/4 cup sugar and 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract! I used a mixture of 1/2 cup cinnamon-sugar with the 3 cup peeled thinly sliced apples (Granny Smith). I did grease and flour a 9" springform pan. I placed foil under the prepared pan and placed pan on a baking sheet. I baked 55minutes at 350o F. I ran knife around the cake to loosen from the pan and cooled at least 1 hr. I plan to share this dessert tomorrow with the Volunteer Office at the hospital where I work! Thank you for this recipe! delowenstein"
