A recipe by Prisca Leclerc.
I was totally taken while looking at Prisca preparing this wonderful dessert.
The smooth movements of caramelizing the apples, and the texture of it, made me even more eager to wait and see the final result.
So happy to have this opportunity to share this recipe with you.
