After buying North Carolina mountain apples, checked Secrets of the South's Best Cooks, and this recipe is a real winner! We used Fuji and Golden Delicious apples and apple pie spice instead of the separate spices. Think the vinegar makes a difference, and the biscuits are flaky and beautiful. I used Tenda Bake gourmet flour from Midstate Mills in Newton NC. Thank you for the great recipe. We will serve this at Thanksgiving, and it may become a tradition! Trish Elrod Charlotte, NC
