i also saw this in family circle, and was going to post it. this recipe didn't work as well as i would have liked it too. i think 2 apples would have been plenty, the center apples were very dried out but the inner apples were juicy. the cheese and apples are a good combo , but i think nextt time i would use a double crust and make a pie.
