This is a spectacular cheese cake with a hidden surprise. Glazed apples accented with cardamom are the surprise that adds a fresh, fruity taste, too.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Crust: Mix all ingredients. Press firmly on bottom and 1 inch up the sides of 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.
  • Glazed Apples: Cut apples into 16ths. In large skillet, combine apples with remaining ingredients. Cook until apples begin to caramelize, turning often. Arrange over bottom of crust.
  • Cheese Filling: Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in sugar, vanilla, and lemon peel. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Pour over apples.
  • Bake in preheated 325 degrees F oven 60-70 minutes, or until lightly browned. Turn oven off and allow cheesecake to remain in oven 1 hour with door slightly ajar. Cool in pan. Chill.
