This recipe takes me back over 40 years when I lived in Germany. My landlady Mathilda would treat me to this pastry and one day I asked her for the recipe. She agreed to show me how to make it, if I taught her how to make American lemon meringue pie! So she taught me how to make it with her metric utensils while I recorded the amounts in equivalent U.S. weights and measures; then I reciprocated making the pie. We were each pleased for such a fun multi-national cooking session, and I have made this recipe ever since, especially in the fall/winter when many apples are in season.
