    keen5's Note:

    I got this recipe from Taste Of Home magazine. I'm digging out my apple recipes, since it's getting to be apple season here. These are really yummy little pastries! Be sure and hide some for yourself, because they will disappear quickly. Prep time includes refrigeration time.

      I followed the recipe to the mark... They did not come out golden but they did come out perfectly after I doctor'd it up a bit. I added 1/4 of pure maraschino cherry juice right after I turned the heat off and mixed it a little and let it sit while I prepared my pastry work area. I also brushed softened butter on the top after they'd been out of the oven for a few minutes and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top. Superb! I didn't give it 5 stars because I still think they could be better. I'll keep trying!

      The cream cheese really gives this a distinct taste...yum, yum. I actually only used the dough portion of this recipe and used some homemade apple-pie filling I had in the freezer. I made these for a Homeless Dinner around Thanksgiving & used the leftover dough to make mini ones (or tasters) for my family. After trying them my hubby suggested a drizzle glaze for the top which I am trying now (the next day b/c my fam was disappointed in only gettin 2 mini ones Thank you for a wonderful base recipe...I'm sure the actual recipe is amazing too...judging by the portion I used! <3

      the dough was a lot easier to work with than other pastry doughs i have worked with and i loved that it was still tender after baking. yum! ran out of apples with about 4 left to fill so i whipped up a blueberry filling. i'm sure i will use this recipe for many things!
