Cheesecake Filled Apples
CHEESECAKE FILLED BAKED APPLES
I'm constantly experimenting with new recipes. Here is a delicious apple dessert recipe that you may want to try for your fall baking. I found it on Pinterest but cannot locate the address to give credit. What is fun about this dessert is that the serving bowl (the apple) is already included. I do recommend a plate to place it on though because of the gooey caramel topping.
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
¼ cup sugar
1 t vanilla
1 t cinnamon
l. Chop the tops of the apples off and scoop out the insides. Discard the core and seeds.
2. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and sugar til smooth. Mix in vanilla, egg and cinnamon til smooth. Fill each of the apples 2/3 full with the cheesecake mixture.
3. Place filled apples on a baking sheet and make sure they are not touching. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes until cheesecake filling is set. Transfer to a plate and pace in fridge til completely cooled.
4. Serve apples at room temp or chilled Top with caramel sauce and pecans.
The apples are rather firm. I may experiment next time by prebaking the apple shells until they soften a bit more. Also, I will add bits of the apple leftover from inside and add to the cheesecake filling mixture.
