Excellent! I used pears because we had an abundant amount, and I made sure to simmer them down with the cinnamon and sugar.. prior to assembling. When you simmer them for about 10 minutes, it gives off a lot of the liquid. Just be sure to use a spatula/spoon that strains the liquid, when you begin to place them on the torte. I decreased the sugar in each layer by half, and it still was plenty (although, I like things not so sweet!). :) I pre-baked the crust for 5 minutes, allowed to cool, and then topped with the cheese mixture and apples(pears). Even so, the crust was still very soft - so if you prefer a crisper crust, you may want to pre-bake it longer. This is such a pretty dessert, easy to make, and delicious to boot!
