The Seattle Times - TIME WAS running out. Our friends Jamie and Andrea had invited us over for dinner on the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. I had been charged with bringing dessert, and it was late in the day. My husband took the kids out to play while I began peeling apples. Andrea's favorite dessert is apple tart with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. It was too late for a pie crust made from scratch, so I had to improvise.
