To me, tortes were always those really expensive, but very tasty looking desserts behind the glass cases in restaurants. Either that or something from a John Grisham novel. But generally desserts. I hadn’t ever thought of making one because they seem to contain lots of thin, easily breakable layers. But then I made that chocolate one a week ago and decided they weren’t that hard after all.
This time I had apples that were slowly going soft before I could eat them all. However, in searching for a recipe that I could make to use up all the apples, I came across one in our church cookbook. A Bavarian Apple Torte, which is even easier than that chocolate one because there are no cake layers! It’s more like a pie, but with a cream cheese layer that may make it slightly better than pie.
