Apple Cheesecake


500 grams          cream cheese (that’s two 250gr packages, please do not use the light version!)

¾ cup                  sugar

1                            egg yolk

1 tea spoon         vanilla extract (the white extract, but brown will do otherwise)

2 or 3                   apples, peeled, halved and sliced (about ½ in thick slices)

½ cup                  sugar

to taste                 cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves

1                             Graham cracker pie crust from the always-reliable Keebler Elves


  1. I recommend taking the cream cheese out of the fridge and its wrapper about 1 hour before doing this, it makes it easier but will still be good otherwise.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F
  3. In food processor, whip cream cheese, yolk, sugar and vanilla extract until you reach a smooth, lump-free consistency.
  4. As cream cheese is processing, place apple slices in bowl with sugar and spices. Mix so to cover slices with the spice/sugar.
  5. Poor cream cheese mixture in pie crust, arrange apple slices on top.
  6. Bake for 30 min or until nice and golden brown. Turn the oven off, let cool and serve.
