"Whenever I have apples, this is my go-to recipe. The dip is so light and fluffy and not too sweet when paired with a tart apple like a Granny Smith."

"This was really easy and good. My kids devoured it. I will say that it is extremely sweet, so you may want to taste it before adding the brown sugar--you may not feel it needs the extra sugar. Next time, I will experiment with either a little cinnamon and nutmeg, or a chopped heath bar on top. I will also offer those thin gingerman pepperidge farm cookies as dippers. I will say that we found Smuckers caramel topping to be a LOT better tasting, and thicker than Hershey's."

"I picked two bushel baskets of apples at my in-law's house. I had a party to go to and decided to try this recipe. It was easy, it was quick, and it was delicious. It was so good that when all the apples were gone people were dipping celery from another dip into this dip. I will make this again and again. Gluten free too!"

"I prefer a Gala apple or Honey Crisp to the Granny Smith. I sprinkle the top with toasted pecans and toffee bits. My friends couldn't keep away from this. Also I soaked the apples in Sprite instead of the lemon juice."

"We loved this dip with Granny Smith apples and will definitely make again. Next time, though, I will use pineapple juice instead of lemon juice. You could taste the lemon juice a little and it was too sour against the sweet dip. Pineapple juice will prevent the apples from turning brown and hopefully not compete with the dip."

"This was delicious and the entire group loved it! I only did a couple shaped apple slices (since you can only use a small part of the apple to do so). I filled the bowl with apple wedges and then put the shapes around the edges and at the top. This was a hit with both the kids and the adults!"

"To Dawson1457; I think that she cut the slices parallel to the core, not across the core. It yields less slices but you are able to use small cookie cutters to make the designs in the slices."

"I make a similar recipe with less ingredients. The cream cheese (softened) 1/2 c brown sugar, 1/4 c white sugar, 1 t vanilla. Mix well. Chill to let flavors deepen. Enjoy.

And in answer to iwant: You can easily make this a day ahead (the flavor actually improves). Also, if you zap the cream cheese in the microwave to soften it will mix up quickly."
