This is a great fall and winter dish to go with your meals or it can be enjoyed just as a dessert. I like to use firm, sweet and tart apples like Pink Lady or Jonathan. These apples hold their shape beautifully, but best of all they contain loads of pectin. Pectin may help heal intestinal permeability, also known as leaky gut.
The components of this dish can be prepared separately 2-3 days in advance. Just store the filling and streusel in the refrigerator and assemble the day you need it. Best served warm.
The original recipe can be found in the book, Why Not Desserts?: Artisan Baking by Jeannette Werle. We’ve adapted the recipe below.
