Made this over the weekend and it was great (husband had two pieces!) I took advice of reviews and this is what I came up with: Used the original crust but doubled the cheese filling while adding 1/4 tsp. of almond extract with 1/2 tsp. vanilla. I think the key to tender apples is slicing thin, so I used four large HoneyCrisp and sliced about 1/8" thick also taking time to arrange them as evenly as possible in a circular pattern. I baked at 450 for 10 minutes and then turned oven down to 375 for about 40-45 minutes. I covered Torte the last 10 minutes so apples wouldn't over brown. We all thought the crisp/tender apples with the cheese filling was a terrific combination (if you want soft apples, make apple pie).
Thanks everyone for the comments!
