Apples Apples

My mom is visiting, so on Saturday, we went to pick up some raw apple juice to make hard cider. Of course, we ended up picking up 30 lbs of apples :), i have made apple pie on Sunday and a jumbo strudel yesterday. Its a simple butter yeast dough which i use for making challa bread (300g flour, 1.5 egg, 100g butter, 3 big spoons of sugar & yeast), i have put tvarog (farmer's cheese) layer under the apples and was generous with rum and walnuts and the result was great (have to remember 400 F for the first 20 min, than 370 for the rest of the baking, all together about 50 min or so).
