Danish Pastry Apple Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2002
This recipe is also called "Apple Slices". That is what my Danish grandmother called them. It's the egg yolk in the dough that makes it different from pie dough. We like this dough much better than pie crust. My mother brought it to every family gathering. When cool, drizzle with glaze made from confectioner's sugar and lemon juice. No water or milk! That also is authentic.

Norwegian Pfeffernerse

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2002
Something is missing here. Loretta needs to go back and check her recipe. I think she got the titles mixed up. "Pfeffernerse" means "pepper nuts". It's supposed to be a spice cookie with pepper added to zip up the spices even more. It's shaped like a nut, but it doesn't contain nuts. This recipe is for a nut cookie, like Pecan Dreams, which in Scandinavia is made with almonds.

Apple Kuchen

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2001
This is a fantastic recipe! I was looking for dessert recipes for homegrown peaches from my tree, of which I have quantities sliced up in my freezer. I have tried quite a few, and this one was the best so far. This recipe works just as well for (thawed) peaches. Because peaches are sweeter than baking apples, I reduced the amount of sugar. I still think it's a bit sweet; I'll reduce the sugar more next time. I also made it with fat-free sour cream; which worked just fine. When I was putting it together, I thought it couldn't possibly work...the cake mix/margarine mixture for the crust looked too dry. But the baking juices soaked down, and that held it together. If you're not fond of coconut, it can be skipped. I thought it added a nice texture. People say it was hard to scoop out; I had no problem. It is more of a cobbler-looking dish, not something you can cut in neat squares.I was using a Corning french white ceramic dish. You are less likely to have a burned/hard bottom using Pyrex, ceramic, or insulated Airbake pans, rather than plain metal. Thanks to Cathy for this delicious recipe!
