In keeping with my "all things Martha" adage, I had to try the recipe that Dorothy Mae Brown cooked on the Martha Stewart Show this past week. It is called a torte but in no way resembles a cake or torte that I have ever seen. I was so intrigued by the segment on the show that I made sure to pick up the Granny Smith apples and heavy cream required. I invited Mom and Dad, Granny and Aunty to have a taste test tonight.
The verdict? It was very easy to make and very, very sweet. It was delicious. The recipe made enough dessert for an army so keep that in mind if you try it. Because you break it into pieces and serve it with whipped cream, it sort of looks like it fell on the floor before you picked it up and served it to your guests, so beware. That might not be the message you want to send.
