This is a really yummy dessert - kind of like an apple pie and cheese cake combination.

This was wonderful! The crust came out flaky and tender. The filling was amazing. I wasn't sure about apples, cream cheese and raisins (I did use currants, but same thing). It was delicate, flavorful and they combined so well together! With the sweetened whipped cream it was a great end to dinner with something to cleanse the palate and not overly sweet as with so many other desserts. Thank you!
