A beautiful dessert...far prettier than my photo shows. I used 3 large Granny Smith apples which yielded about 5 cups of thinly sliced apples. In the filling, I used 1 cup of the apples which I had cut further into thirds, sprinkled lightly with cinnamon and two shakes of nutmeg before stirring into the cream cheese. The remaining 4 cups of apples were used for the topping with slightly more sugar and cinnamon to compensate for the extra apples. I also followed the advice of another reviewer and microwaved the apples a little before placing them on top. There was about 1/3 cup of cinnamon/sugar/apple juice left in the bowl, so I added a little cornstarch and just poured it over the top of the apples. I was wondering if I would get a soggy torte, but the crust stayed crisp. I used a 10 inch tart pan and lined the bottom with parchment paper. This torte would be perfect for a special occasion as it can be made ahead and would travel well too.
