    I doubled the recipe. At first, all I could taste was the cheese, but if you let it set in the fridge overnight, the flavors intensify. It was very good.

    Easy to make and pretty. I used 1/2 of a honey crisp apple, organic cream cheese, and 1 cup of toasted pecans for the outside. (For toasting nuts, I place them on a cookie sheet in a 350 oven for 4 minutes, and use a timer.) Served with ritz crackers. My guests said it was very good.
