Instead of the usual fruit topped tart or cheesecake, this graham cracker crust is covered with caramelized apples and a thin layer of “cheesecake.” All together, it’s barely an inch high.

Ingredients

Crust:
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Apple Cream Cheese Filling:
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 cups thinly sliced peeled apples
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmed
2 (8-ounce) packages 1/3-less fat cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9-inch springform pan.
  2. To prepare crust, combine cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter in a large bowl. Press evenly on bottom of pan.
  3. To prepare apple cream cheese filling, melt the 1 1/2 tablespoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; cook, turning occasionally with a large spoon, 8 minutes or until nearly tender. Arrange evenly over crust.
  4. Beat cheese at medium speed until smooth. Gradually add sugar, eggs, vanilla and cream; beat until evenly blended. Pour over apples.
  5. Bake 40 minutes or until top is slightly jiggly in the center. Cool on wire rack; cover and refrigerate overnight.
