I used fat free cream cheese to cut down on the calories and fat even more... was delicious.

This is a great recipe. I substituted sugar with Truvia baking blend to cut back on the sugar. You can't tell. I have had numerous requests for this recipe since I made it! Definitely will make this again.

This is very good. It makes a nice presentation but really gets put together in a snap. I used 5 small Granny Smith apples and whole wheat flour.

I thought I was buying 1/3 fat cream cheese but misread the label. It was 1/3 neufchatel. It was the first time I was trying this recipe, so I had no pre-conceived ideas for taste. It was a delicious "mistake".

Very good. The cream filling tasted very good with the tart apples we picked.

Wasn't MY cup of tea, but if I was expecting company who I knew was a huge fan of apples, I MIGHT pull out this recipe again...speaking of tea -- that would probably been good with this!
