I'm going to get kicked out of Five Ingredients Friday for inability to count, but this recipe is too good to not share. This comes from a restaurant that catered my wedding and all three of my sisters' weddings. Though not usually offered on their catering menu, they've made this Apple Cheese for us each time. It's one of their Sunday Brunch items. To us, it's a family favorite. I hadn't made it in a long time as I lost the cookbook years ago in a flood when I lived in New Orleans. My step-mother got the recipe for us after my sister's wedding last May. I hadn't had it in years, but it was just as good. It sounds strange, but you have to taste it.
