    The cheese was overwhelming .It has a very strong and pungent taste. I feel there was way too much of it. You couldn't taste the apples or walnuts.I

    I found the amount to be pefect for 30 cups, and Granny Smith unpeeled for sure!! My mouth is watering as I am preparing them for the 3rd time this season.

    Everyone who tastes these is addicted. Even the college boys were asking if they would be able to make them! :o)

    So very easy and delish. Used a honey crisp apple but a granny smith (too sweet)would have been better. Also did not peel the apple. The recipe was more than 2 pkgs of phyllo cups. Could probably stretched to make 3 pkgs. THis is a keeper and a definite do again. K

    I made these for a party and everyone loved them. Easy to make and presentation is very nice. I had a lot of cheese leftover, so next time I'm going to buy less of the cheese. I put this recipe in my own cookbook I'm writing!

    I made these yesterday for a party and they were awful. They looked like the picture but tasted terrible and my whole kitchen smelled from the cheese. The ingredients are so simple that there's not much to mess up on, but since it got rave reviews from others, the only thing I can think of is that maybe the brand of Gorgonzola I bought (alouette) was not a good one to use.

    Outstanding! Made them last year at Thanksgiving and got requests to make again at Christmas and any other party I get invited too. They have become a signature appetizer for me!.
