Bavarian Apple Torte

I love finding new recipes to share with family and friends. This wonderful torte is sure to bring pleasure to whomever you serve it!

The Filling:
2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1/4 sugar
2 eggs
3/4 tsp vanilla extract

Beat cream cheese and sugar, add eggs and vanilla, mix well

The Crust:
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine and press into ungreased 9 inch springform pan

Peel and thinly slice 3 tart apples, I use Granny Smith. **You can do this step first, place sliced apples in a mixing bowl and cover with cold water, add a tablespoon of lemon juice to keep them from browning. keep refrigerated until ready to use. Drain and lightly pat dry when ready for them

Pour the filling over the crust....

Toss the apples with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and spoon over filling

Bake at 350 degrees for -65 minutes or until center is set. Cool on wire rack. Store in refrigerator. Cut torte into wedges with serrated knife.
