10 stars for easy, 3 stars for taste. Easy to make but strongly agree w/other reviews--you must add cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. or the taste will be bland. After living in Germany for a spell, I missed the substantive, rich apple filling. I forgot to do it this time, but next time I will add vanilla flavoring. I also missed the buttery taste. I could have infused it by adding a little flour to my butter/sugar sauce in my sauteed apple mixture to thicken it up. (To avoid excessive juice, I strained my sauteed the mixture of apples, raisins, chopped apricots (b/c I didn't have enough raisins) in a 1/2 tsp of butter & the sugar... I really didn't need the butter b/c the juice from the apples developed.) I don't like Granny Smiths but they are perfect for this recipe. I folded dough to overlap. Overall, VERY easy to make. I used confectioner's sugar instead of almonds to dress it up & added a few chopped walnuts to the apple filling. I'd make it again but add vanilla flavoring & season the dough more. Give it a try!
