Crust 6 Tbsp butter 1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/3 cup very finely ground fresh roasted coffee 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 Tbsp coffee liquid, chilled
Filling 3 large apples, peeled and sliced 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar 1 Tbsp flour 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon cloves 1 teaspoon finely ground fresh roasted coffee 3 Tbsp butter, cut into small pieces
Sauce 1/4 cup brewed espresso (or dark brewed coffee) 1 cup powdered sugar 2 Tbsp butter 1 teaspoon coffee liqueur
Heat and stir all sauce ingredients until smooth. Chill before serving.
Preparation Crust: In a mixing bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, flour and ground coffee together. Process until mixture is evenly fine textured. Add the nuts. In a separate bowl, combine the vanilla and coffee liquids together and add them to the nut mixture. Process only until mixed. Turn mixture into a 9" pie plate, spread and press evenly and lightly over the bottom and sides. Filling: Arrange apple slices around the edge of the crust-covered pan. Chop some pieces into cubes for the center. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and coffee and pour over the apples. Dot the butter over the top. Preheat oven to 400º F. Bake for 10 minutes then reduce oven temperature to 350º F. Bake for 15 minutes more, until the apples begin to bubble. Place a puddle of sauce in a plate and set a piece of the torte on top to serve
