About this recipe: This tart has a buttery shortbread base, a sweet cream cheese filling and layers of cinnamon coated apples. It's topped off with toasted almonds which add a lovely crunch and make it look irresistible!

Good recipe, Terri. I've made this twice now. First according to the recipe: I like the crust, but there was a little too much of it for my taste, and I liked the filling which there was a little to little of it. I thought the apples being crunchy detracted from the overall flavor. So, the second time I cut the crust by 1/3, upped the filling by another 1/2, and precooked my apples in the cinnamon sugar in the microwave for 3 minutes. Then I arranged the apples in a circular pattern covering the entire top of the torte. While warm from the oven, I covered the top evenly with a cinnamon sugar sauce. Wow! What flavor, and the presentation was beautiful. The ladies at my Bunco party thought I had ordered it from their favorite bakery! Thanks for creating the roadmap that helped me reach my destination....AND keep up my reputation as the best cook in the group! - 08 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
