This was good, not great. I would rate it 3 stars but everyone else really liked it, so I upped it to 4. First off, I'm pretty sure this is a tart and not a torte. Second, I had to cook it maybe 20 minutes more than the recipe called for due to the apples being undercooked. At the point they finally were tender, bits of the crust were over browned. I do not agree with others saying there is not enough cream cheese filling. I think there is too much. If making again, I would make more dough for the crust as it barely went halfway up the sides of my tart pan. I would then probably just do a thin layer of cream, maybe 1/4 inch. I also made the cream with almond extract in place of vanilla which was delicious. Next, the apples need something more to meld them together. I would maybe make some sort of a paste on the stop by cooking them a bit with sugar, apple juice, and cornstarch. Jam or something would work too. I didn't like that the apples were just kind of sitting on top on the cream and would've liked it to cook with the other layers. It also needs something to keep the almonds in place. They just fell right off the slices. All of that aside, the tart did have good flavors and was well received.
