While on vacation, we came across a little cookbook, 101 Apple Recipes, while bopping around a quaint little downtown apothecary. This recipe was one of the few I got around to trying. And, it's simple, yet unique in its flavorings. The original recipe cored then sliced the apples, and put a dollop of cheese mix in the middle core hole. And the bread was cut to size. And, while this looked elegant, it wasn't very. . . eatable. So I stripped it of its pretty and allowed the flavors to blend better!
