I have been making this for years. It started in high school, when I had to make something Bavarian for German class. Little did I know it would be so popular. When someone is having a party, they request this torte. I make it every Thanksgiving and most New Year's Eves, but it is good any time of the year. It *does* fall apart, some of the times when I make it, but who cares? It still tastes good. Once, I tried baking the crust first, to avoid this, and the end result wasn't as good. It should be a soft shortbread crust. The only changes I've ever made is to add brown sugar to the apple mix, and I rarely add the almonds. It *is* a lot of apples, but I personally like it that way. No one has ever complained, but I'm sure it would still taste good if you opted to use less apples.
