    Delicious and easy enough for kids to make. My sister and I are on a low carb diet and this is a great snack anytime during the day.

    Totally yummy! I don't know what was better, the taste oor the smell of the apples in the microwave. I used the apple pie spice on the apples and it was just great. I loved the combination of it with the hint of almond extract in the cottage cheese. This dish is simple and takes snacking and cottage cheese to a whole new level of good! Thank you or sharing!

    This was a great treat that I made for my mom for breakfast this morning. I wasn't sure whether it was one or two tablespoons of Splenda since you say two in the beginning and then one in the instructions. I used one and it seemed to be sweet enough. Thanks for this delicious, simple recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2008.

    Excellent! this recipe comes together so fast, so easy and is tasty, tasty, tasty ! I didn't have apple pie spice ( we don't have that here in NL, so used a smidge of allspice and some extra cinnamon) The cottage cheese goes unexpectedly well with the apple and the microwave makes this a total breeze. I'm not a breakfast person, but am trying to be, and this recipe is twisting my arm LOL. please see my rating system: 5 wonderful stars for healthiness, speed, ease and great taste of everything together. Thanks ! (Recipe made for Pick A Chef Spring 2008)
