"This is a great recipe and looks like it came from a professional bakery. It isn't hard--just a little time-consuming." — Liza

I liked every aspect about these except the cottage cheese. I was unsure about the cottage cheese and the amount. And, I couldn't quite get the batter to get smooth, like I was worried about. I was hoping for a more creamier texture with the cheese like danishes at coffee shops or bakeries. The texture though was just odd to me. I also had thought about just pinching 2 of the sides so the apples would show, but there was too much cheese filling on each one to do that. The first batch I didn't sprinkle enough sugar on, and I then realized that 3 Tblsp. came out to be 1/2 tsp. of sugar on top of each one. The ones with the right amount tasted best. I also think homemade puff pastry would be much more flakier, and less greasy, but it is also a very time-consuming so I understand the usage of the frozen. This is not a repeat recipe, because of the cheese taste and texture not being to my liking, but it was interesting to try either way.
not well thought out recipe. but the cheese mix is tasty. it will mix. just not completely. it's fine however. the biggest problem is sealing the edges. wet one edge with a small amount of water then fold and pinch with fork tines. 20.mins at 400 is good. my kids ate them up
