Bavarian Apple Cheesecake

I found this recipe on the internet soon after we got our first computer.
Boy did a whole new world open up!
Who needed to buy cookbooks anymore?!
I still do though.
It still has some cinnamon on it!
Needless to say, this recipe was a huge success, according all those
who had a sample of it.
It was my friend's birthday last week and I made her one,
so I thought I would share it with you.
You can find the recipe here.
(I finally found the exact recipe that I have.)
I always start with the crust of the cheesecake.
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup plus one tablespoon soft butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
Mix with beaters. (Make sure you are wearing old clothes. You'll be dusted with flour)
Press down in a 10" springform pan
Set it aside.
Then peel two large Granny Smith apples.
Cut into thinnish slices.
This will give you enough to completely cover a 15" x 10" cookie pan.
Put in baking dish. (I always put a piece of tin foil in and grease it a bit)
Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.
While the apples are cooking in the oven,
Beat together:
Two eight ounce packages of cream cheese softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
Pour over the crust in the spring form pan.
When the apples are ready and cool enough to touch,
arrange around the pan.
I turn the apples the other way when filling in the centre to make it look a bit fancy.
When all the apples are on, toss 1/4 cup of sliced blanched almonds.
Mix together:
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Cover the entire pan with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
Bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
This will leak so you have to put something underneath it.
It looks so perfect when it's done!
You really have to try it!
I made a second one to share with the ladies at Windsor Life Centre.
They'll be enjoying this while I share on this.
I will be sharing this at:
