1/2 c. butter ( 1 stick)
1/3 c. sugar
1/4. t. vanilla
1 c. flour

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 t. vanilla

1/2 t. cinnamon
1/3 c. sugar
4 c. peeled, cored and sliced apples
1/2 c. chopped walnuts

Preheat over to 450.

To make the crust, cream the butter and sugar, add in vanilla and flour. Press into a 9″ round greased, spring form pan, covering the bottom and 2″ up the sides. 

To make the filling, mix the cream cheese and sugar until smooth, add in the egg and vanilla, Spread over the bottom of the crust.

For the topping, sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar over the apples and mix well. Spoon over the filling. (you can make it pretty by layering but I don’t and it tastes just as good!). Sprinkle with the walnuts. Bake for 10 minutes at 450 and then reduce heat to 400. Continue baking for 25 minutes. Allow it to cool completely before removing the sides of the pan. 

Note: You can also add 1/2 t. almond extract to the filling and use sliced almond instead of walnuts! If you want to be fancy and give it a shiny glaze, warm some apricot jam and brush it over the top when it is done baking.
