This rich, creamy torte has always been one of my favorite autumn desserts. Mom uses the freshest apples from a local orchard and bakes this treat until the apples are crisp-tender. It tastes as good as it looks. -Alyson Armstrong, Parkersburg, West Virginia

"This is a great dessert. So, why am I only giving it 4 stars? This is very close to Southern Living's Caramel Apple Cheesecake Tart. While this dessert is handsome, the other recipe is also easy, but makes you look like a master pastry chef."

"This is always such a hit when I make it for someone. Definitely a fall favorite. I'm wondering if it is possible to freeze this at all. Someone asked me to make it for them for their Thanksgiving dinner and since I will be busy getting things together for my own dinner, I was wondering if I could make it a couple days before. Thanks for the recipe"

"Made this today for Thanksgiving dinner. I followed the recipe to the letter. When I make it next time I will let it cook long then the time given. I felt the filling was not fully cooked and the same with the apples. I used cortland apples and they were still crunshy. But in general everyone liked it."

"Delicious, I have made in a corning ware pan, when I didn't have a large enough spring pan. Turned out delicious, one of my favorites all year."

"I made this for work. Everyone loved it and I was asked for the recipe.

I used a 9 1/2" springform, since that's what I had, and checked it after 45 minutes of baking. It still needed more time. Ended up baking it between 50-55 minutes.
I also lined the pan with parchment paper so it wouldn't leak. It worked well. After it cooled I gently peeled the paper down and used a knife to cut around the base of the torte."

"I took this to a reunion luncheon and it was such a hit. Everyone wanted the recipe. By time I went to get some, it was all gone. Now I guess I'll have to make another. It is wonderful."
