This was a huge hit with DH & DS. The morning after, I found one slim wedge left in the kitchen. The low-fat cream cheese works just fine, as did using a 10" springform pan & 3 large cooking apples. Thanks LorenLou for a "tart with a twist".
This tart is fantastic. I made it in my food processor which shortened prep time. I'll be serving it at my next dinner party. No whipped cream needed! Thank you for the recipe.
This was a really simple, and quick to assemble recipe. I think I might have liked to have par-baked the crust, my crust became a little soggy. Loved that this tart wasn't overly sweet. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Adjusted the recipe for my 11" tart pan without a problem. The cheesecake filling is absolutely delicious -- sweet and creamy without being too heavy. I omitted the almonds and didn't particularly miss them. All in all, this is a great recipe that is sure to impress!
We enjoyed this as a change of pace in our apple desserts. I used honey crisp apples as that is what I had on hand. They did not soften up so I won't cook with them again, but the taste was good. This came together quickly. I liked it better on day two, when the juices had had time to soak into the crust. It wasn't soggy at all but rather like a moist sugar cookie. It did not last past day two :)
I found this recipe about 20 yrs ago and people always rave over it. Just a wonderful blend of flavors and textures. I love that it can be made ahead but we prefer to serve it at room temperature. I've been asked to share the recipe dozens of times.
OMG, this is one of the best recipes I've made. It has a wonderful texture. I have begun to make it with whole wheat flour which give it a little bit of a wheat taste. Thanks for posting this great tart.
I used Macintosh apples and followed the recipe... It came out beautifull and delicious. I served homemade whipped cream on top and sprinkled with chopped almonds... Delicious to say the least!
What a delicious, beautiful looking tart!! It was worth the extra effort to nicely arrange the apple slices in the dish. I especially loved the shortbread crust!!
Easy to make and delicious!
