Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Make the crust: Cream the butter and sugar. Stir in the vanilla. Finally, mix in the flour to make a smooth dough. Press into the bottom of an 8-inch springform pan, giving it about a 1-inch rim. Bake 15 minutes, or until lightly golden. Remove the tart shell from the oven.
  3. While the crust bakes, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla for the cream filling until smooth. Make the topping by tossing the apple slices with the cinnamon, sugar, and nuts.
  4. Remove the tart shell from the oven. Spread over the cream mixture. Arrange the apple slices on top, and then scatter over the nuts. Bake until the apples are tender and golden, about 40 minutes.
  5. Remove to a rack to cool. For easy slicing, chill tart before serving.
  6. Serve with a dollop of freshly whipped cream and a cup of coffee, tea or hot spiced cider.
