Servings Per Recipe: 8
"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"."
"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."
"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."
"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!"
"Practically perfect. I made it in a 12 inch tart pan, so I changed the recipe to 12 servings (1-1/2 the original recipe) and it worked just right. Delicious. I forgot the almonds, but want to try them next time. It sure makes a beautiful tart!"
"Turned out so well despite few modifications. For the crust, I used 1/4 cup sugar and 1/16 tsp salt instead of 1/3 cup sugar. Because I ran out of butter, I also substituted with 1/4 cup butter+ 1/4 cup butter flavored shortening. I followed the recipe exactly for the cream cheese mixture. I added only 2 tbsp sugar to the sliced apples (about 4 medium Granny Smith apples) instead of 1/3 cup. I omitted the sliced almonds but will not do so next time because it seems the tart could taste even more amazing with them. The tart came out pretty and not to sweet. However it tasted a little eggy so next time I might try to use only 1 egg and a bit of cream instead of 2 eggs."
"I made this for company and everyone loved it! Simple to throw together and the results couldn't be better!"
"We enjoyed this with the in-laws! Quick and easy, although I did cheat with the crust. I used partially overlapping granny smith apple slices that I cut with the apple tool mentioned by raisingcain (I love mine too!). I used ready-made shortbread crust from the bakery aisle. Delicious!"
"Excellent recipe. I took a short cut and some liberties. for my short cut I used a store bought rolled up pie crust and a tart pan. I like the way the fluted edges look. I have a peeler/corer/slicer that took care of the apples quick. (best investment ever when you live in an apple growing state) My liberties were instead of vanilla extract and almonds sprinkled on top I used 1/2 tsp of almond extract and an apricot glaze to make it shiny. Thanks Lorenlou it was tasty!"
"I tried this today and i thought it was pretty easy to whip up. I used a mandolin to slice the apples very thinly and although my tart didnt look half as good as Mark's pic but it smelled heavenly while baking. This tastes somewhat like apple cheese cake."
"Supremely easy and delicious. I used shortcrust pastry from the freezer, and followed the recipe for the rest. Looked great too."
"one of the best cheese tarts EVER. thank you for posting it ^^"
"Very tasty. I split the recipe and made tartlets and reduced the cooking time a bit, and they turned out wonderful."
"Where have you been all my life? A+ in simplicity, presentation, early preparation and taste! I have made quite a few different types of cakes, tarts, etc. in my life, this is one of the best! All my friends thought I bought it at a bakery...until they saw the bottom of the springform pan on the plate! I ate 2 slices by myself, even though I'm on a low-carb diet, but this is worth every pound that I gain! Thanks LorenLou!"
"A special treat Tart,was easy to make. the taste was just like the one I had in Germany,which was delicious. I will make this again with pears for a differnt twist."
