DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven.
  • Grease (or spray with Pam) a 9 inch (22 cm) springform pan.
  • Crust:
  • In the bowl of your food processor place the flour and sugar. Pulse to blend together.
  • Add butter and pulse until dough just begins to come together.
  • Pat the dough onto the bottom and one inch (2.5 cm) up the sides of the pan.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator while you make the filling.
  • Filling:
  • In a food processor process the cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add the sugar and mix well.
  • Blend in the egg and vanilla extract and process until smooth.
  • Remove the crust from the fridge and pour in the filling.
  • Return to refrigerator while you prepare the topping.
  • Topping:
  • Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  • Toss the sliced apples in the sugar mixture.
  • Spoon the apples evenly over the cream cheese layer and sprinkle with almonds.
  • Place the springform pan on a larger baking sheet to catch the drips.
  • Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 10 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown (apples are soft when pierced with a fork), and filling is almost set.
  • Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool.
  • Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and serve at room temperature.
  • If there are leftovers cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
