      Absolutely luscious. I substituted apple juice for the wine but otherwise followed the recipe. I halfway expected the cheese to melt out of the bottom of the cored apple and dissolve in the juices but it didn't happen. The filling stayed beautifully mounded atop the apple. Now I'm thinking how to incorporate it into my next dinner party - it's that good and that attractive. Excellent, Mercy.
