my famous cheesecake/apple dessert

before sugar and cinnamon and baking

i've been making this dessert for a long time time. i really like cheesecake but sometimes there's too much cheese and not enough pie crust. whether it's graham cracker crust or regular buttery pie crust, i just love it! i made a dessert with just a little filling and lots of crust and topped it with apple, sugar, and cinnamon.

here's the recipe
12 oz packages cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar (sometimes i use turbinado sugar)
2 eggs
1/4 vanilla
1 apples, thinly sliced (you can peel it but i don't)
1/3 cup sugar mixed with 1 t cinnamon

since i haven't been able to perfect pie crust from scratch, i just buy it from trader joe's (it's the best!). i lay both pie crusts together and roll it out and put it into a large 16 inch round pan. after spreading the filling, i cover it with apple slices and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. then bake for 30 min at 350 degrees

I just wanted to tell you how much I love that you have this blog. I guess I'm just one of "those" that enjoy the Martha Stewartish ways of pastry and party crafting. It's so nice to share that with other people, the strange little things that excite you. I just wish I was adventurous enough to try more things from scratch. I just want to get on with the 'making it pretty'part, y'know? hehe anyway, your stuff's beautiful...and delicious (that's the part I'm still aiming for!)
