Apple Cream Cheese Tart


Last Christmas (I gave you my heart…) my mother in law brought the most delicious dessert-an Apple Cream Cheese Tart.  It bursts with the classic cream cheese and apple combination with a hint of cinnamon. She had gotten the recipe from Rainbow Orchards in Apple Hill and if  you happen to ever visit them, they have the BEST Apple Cider Donuts.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

Apple Cream Cheese Tart (Serves 18, half the recipe fits in a 9″x9″ pan)


  • 1-1/2 c. softened butter (do not use margarine)
  • 1  c. sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 3 c. flour
  • Mix all together and press into a 9″x 13″ pan


  • 24 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 c. sugar
  • Cream together and pour over the crust.


  • 8 c. cored, peeled and sliced apples (I like Granny Smith)
  • 1-1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 3/4 c. sliced almonds (optional)
  • Mix the apples, sugar and cinnamon together and arrange over the filling. Sprinkle the almonds on top.

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes then reduce to 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes until set (doesn’t jiggle too much).
