Osteria Mozza's Nancy Silverton is renowned for always trying to find the one perfect way to prepare a dish. So imagine her surprise when she learned she'd been using the wrong dough for her apple borsellini — beggar's purses filled with baked apples. No matter, she went right to work fixing it, and the result was good enough to be one of our best recipes of the year. The secret is a "rough puff" pastry dough that is easier to prepare than the classic and makes a better wrapper. Apple borsellini Total time: 2 hours, 15 minutes, plus macerating and cooling times Note: From Nancy Silverton of Osteria Mozza Servings: 12 4 pounds tart apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled, cored and cut into ¾-inch cubes 1 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (¾ stick)

For those of us not directly invested in Apple, the stock's trajectory over the last six months has been a thrill ride to rival anything you'll find at Magic Mountain.

At the peak, learned Wall Street analysts were speculating about how high Apple could go and whether the sky really was the limit; at the current trough, they're all but proclaiming the end of the Apple era. Here are the questions on everyone's lips: Who's right?

As Apple's luster dims on Wall Street, the tech giant's stock is becoming cheaper and cheaper. By at least one measure, Apple's stock is becoming a bargain. Its price-to-earnings ratio, a shorthand measure of value for stocks, has fallen well below the average of the broad Standard & Poor's 500 index. “The P/E is extremely low,” said Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst for S&P Dow Jones Indices. As Apple's stock falls 10%, to $461.46, in early trading following Wednesday's disappointing earnings report, its P/E ratio -- based on the previous 12 months of earnings -- is down to 10.5.

One of the great new features on iOS 6 and the iPhone 5 is a new app called Passbook, but for a lot of people who updated their devices with the new operating system, the app simply won't work. In theory, Passbook will let you keep digital passes in one location. When you open the app, you get a screen saying you can use Passbook to store digital copies of flight boarding passes, event tickets and coupons. Target on Thursday announced it would support mobile coupons on Passbook.

Apple Inc. may not have more money than God. But it's got more cash than Uncle Sam. As the government struggled to reach an agreement on raising the debt ceiling, the U.S. Treasury's cash balance fell to $74 billion this week. That's less than the $76 billion that Apple now has in cash. It's not terribly likely that the government will ask Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs for help. But it wouldn't be the first time the government has asked for a bailout from an industry mogul.

As worldwide attention focuses on Apple's problem-riddled Maps app, another Apple miscue is about to be quietly put to rest. This month, Apple's iTunes music social network -- Ping -- began displaying a sign notifying users that the network was no longer accepting new users and will shut down Sunday. Ping's closing comes as little surprise. Apple plans to update iTunes next month and will integrate it with Facebook and Twitter, letting users "Like" and share songs, apps and other pieces of content.
