I have been baking along with the Tuesday with Dorie bakers as we work through Dorie's book, Baking Chez Moi. When I saw the beautiful picture accompanying this recipe, I was very anxious to make it but held off till now--a perfect time with many varieties of apples hitting the farm stands. And if I do say so myself, my kuchen looks as lovely as the one in the book! Thanks, Dorie, for such great recipes and easy-to-follow directions!
To see how the other bakers did this week, check out Tuesdays with Dorie.
