Bavarian Apple Cheesecake

Bavarian Apple Cheesecake

This recipe is from an early 90s Better Homes and Gardens magazine I bought for 10 cents at the library. This dessert is fabulous!




Bavarian Apple Cheesecake

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup margarine or butter
  • 1 Tbsp. shortening
  • 1/4 t. vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 4 cups peeled, cored and sliced cooking apples
  • 2 pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

In a medium mixer bowl, beat the first 1/3 cup sugar, margarine, shortening, and 1/4 tsp. vanilla at medium speed on mixer until combined. Blend in flour and salt until crumbly. Pat onto bottom of 9 inch springform pan; set aside. Place apple slices in a single layer in a shallow baking pan; cover with foil. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla; beat with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, all at once, beating on low speed just until combined. Pour into dough-lined pan. Arrange warm apple slices atop filling. Combine remaining 1/3 cup sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle filling with sugar mixture and almonds. Bake in 400 degree F oven for 40 minutes or until golden. Cool. Remove sides and place cake on plate; cover. Chill 4-24 hours.
