Dunn Bros Coffee Apple Torte

Ingredients

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

UPDATE:   My wonderful husband and I made this today and I'm sorry to say it wasn't THAT good. :(

George: Thanks for stopping by and let me know if it's any good.  I've been flat on my back for three days with a back muscle strain and haven't had the energy to try it.

Fran - I see there's a method to your madness... soliciting food on your blog now, eh? Sorry to hear you weren't pleased with how it turned out. Sounds good!

Fran,   I made this last night and had the same experience.  I think it is only for those folks who like to eat coffee grounds. :(   Next time I make it. (If I do), I'm going to replace the coffee grounds with instant coffee.  I'm still stumped with the filling though, lots of sugar and not much else.  It didn't seem to melt and liquify well.  I didn't even try the sauce.
