Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon potato starch
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 eggs
1/4 cup pecans, ground
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
3 granny smith apples, cored, peeled, sliced thin
3 tablespoons sweet white wine
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

reheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a small spring form pan and dust with potato starch and ground pecans. Shake out excess and save. In a food processor or blender, blend the cream cheese, cottage cheese, sugar, remaining potato starch/ground pecan mixture and egg yolks together. Pour the mixture into a bowl. Beat egg whites until stiff. Gently fold into the cheese mixture, 1/3 at a time. Pour into prepared pan and bake at 350ºF for 1 hour. Turn off oven; open door and let cool. While cake is cooling, sauté the apples, cinnamon and pecans in the white wine until they are slightly soft. Remove from heat and cool. Spoon over cheese cake while serving.
