  1. To make dough: in a small bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup ground almonds, and 1/4 cup sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Add extract. Shape dough into a ball, gently press dough against the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch springform or cake pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. To make filling: in a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, and cream of tartar until smooth. Add egg; beat on low just until combined. Pour over crust.
  3. To make topping: in another medium-sized bowl, combine brown sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, and cinnamon. Add apples and stir until coated. Spoon over the filling. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup slivered almonds.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight. Remove from pan.

Easy and soooo yummy. It was the first dish gone at a ladies meeting I took it to. Definately would make it again and maybe double the recipe for a 9 x 13.

I wanted something different from apple pie but like apple pie. And this was it. I used Grany Smith apples which gave a nice sweet and sour effect. I agree with other viewers, the cheesecake fil...

This was a total hit! I liked the simplicity of the recipie a lot. I agree with the other reviews, I will increase the quantity for more crust (mine only made it partway up the side of the pan)...

I made this today along with my own Peach Cheese Cake. Your recipe inspired me to add nuts to my crust. Thanks for such a great recipe

This cheesecake was pretty good! I used some of the helpful hints and made a couple additions to the original recipe. I doubled the crust which has an excellent flavor. I also doubled the che...
