Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

Crust:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup flour
Filling:
3 apples
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons whipping cream
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 lemon, juice and rind
Topping:
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon Saigon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, softened


Directions

For the crust: Cream butter and sugar thoroughly, blend in flour. Press onto the bottom and 1/2 inch up the side of a greased 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until slightly golden.


For the filling: Peel, core and halve the apples. Cut into 1/3-inch thick slices. In frying pan, melt sugar with butter over medium heat, cook apples for 3-5 minutes or just until tender (and lightly browned) but NOT mushy. Add cream and cook stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. Set aside. In a large bowl beat cream cheese with brown sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until just blended. Beat in sour cream, lemon rind and juice. Using a slotted spoon arrange apples over crust, cover with cheese mixture.


For topping: Mix the ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling.


Bake 45 minutes or until center is just set. Cool thoroughly at room temperature. Chill at least 4 hours or overnight.


You can make this ahead of time, pop it in the freezer, ready to serve for up to 3 months. Store right in the springform pan covered in plastic wrap and just thaw in the refrigerator when ready to use.
