Cheesecake-Stuffed Fresh Orchard Apples

This yummy, easy fall treat is a winner for small gatherings or family dinner dessert.

Go to your local farm or your favorite apple vendor and get some large apples- good for filling with cheesecake! This might be a little bit of a cheat but you still get a fruit serving out of this decadent dessert topped with raspberry coulis. YUM!

What You Need

  • 6 apples
  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • 2⅔ ounces sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon sugar icing
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • Chopped pecans/cookie crumbles to garnish

What You Do

 

  1. Preheat oven to 320°F.
  2. Cut off the tops of the apples and hollow each one out.
  3. Spritz/drizzle each one with fresh lemon juice.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese and sugar.
  5. Mix well, add the egg and vanilla extract, and stir thoroughly until smooth.
  6. Spoon the mixture into each apple.
  7. Set the stuffed apples on a baking tray, and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes. Once the cheesecake has set, place it in the fridge and let it cool.

 

Make Raspberry Coulis: In a food processor, combine the raspberries and powdered sugar. Blend until thoroughly puréed.

Once the stuffed apples have cooled, top them with chopped pecans. Drizzle with raspberry coulis and your choice of biscuit/cookie crumbles, and serve.
