To my utter dismay, TWD made the brown sugar apple cheesecake before I joined. To my utter amazement, I still have not made it. (and it’s not looking good with all of the apple and/or fall fruit recipes coming up. how am i going to squeeze a cheesecake into a month with two pies???).
I did, however, manage to get to the tarte fine. I did not manage to come up with any apricot jam. I knew there was a cosmic reason a jar of Smuckers Caramel topping has been sitting in my “pantry” (quotes for the house…pantry is being used liberally) for some time now. I have to say, I am not sure the apricot jam would have been any better.
Overall, we liked this and polished it off in record time. If memory serves, I prefer the apple turnovers but am looking forward to trying Dorie’s apple pie. I almost made it a couple of weeks go but went another direction.
Next week: more apples – bundt cake style.
