These delicious baked cheesecake apples are what I decided to serve at my families Easter dinner. I’m sorry that it has taken so long to add more content onto my blog, but there has been so much going on that it became pretty crazy for a while. The major thing that’s going on besides school is my wonderful boyfriend of three almost four years asked me to marry him, so crazy wedding planning has begun even though we wont get married until next year once I have my nursing pre-requisites done. With that being said there will be some wonderful recipes popping up from the bridal shower I’m already planning.
Now to get back to business about this wonderful, light and rich dessert. This recipe is super easy to make and I actually found it on pintrest some where, but lets be honest for a second, we all pin so much on pintrest that I actually can’t find where I pinned it and being who I am I changed it up anyways.
Start off by washing 7 apples, I don’t remember the name but I just grabbed some that were on sale at the store. You can use either a sweet or tart apple like granny smith if you would like, my dad doesn’t like really sweet things so i made his with a granny smith and he loved it.
This part is kind of tricky. You are going to take a sharp knife and stab the apple from the top at an angle and cut or jab around the top in a circle.
Once you go all the way around the apple take a spoon and pop the top off.
Take the knife and go around the inside of the apple and then take a spoon and scoop out the middle.
Place all of the apples in a oven proof pan.
Place one 8 ounce package of cream cheese that’s at room temperature into the mixer and beat until smooth.
Add a quarter cup of sugar and beat until smooth.
Lastly add 1 teaspoon vanilla, one egg, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg.
Beat the ingredients until they are smooth and well combined.
Take the cheesecake mixture and spoon into the apples. If you are not baking these immediately, place some plastic wrap on top and put in the refrigerator until your ready to bake them.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake them for 25 to 30 minutes or until the apples are soft and baked.
Top the apples off with some graham cracker crumbles, caramel sauce and serve warm. I allowed them to cool down for about 30 minutes or so. I hope you enjoy these delicious, sweet, and light treat.
