Ingredients

CRUST

1 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
sliced almonds
2 Tbsp
sugar
1/4 tsp
salt
6 Tbsp
cold unsalted butter, cut in small pieces
1 large
egg yolk
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract

FILLING

1 large
egg
8 oz
cream cheese, softened
1/4 c
sugar
3/4 tsp
vanilla extract

TOPPING

4 c
peeled and thinly sliced mcintosh apples
1/4 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/4 c
sliced almonds

Directions Step-By-Step

1
For crust: Pulse flour, almonds, sugar and salt in a food processor, using about 10 one-second pulses, until combined. With the motor running, add butter, a few pieces at a time, until combined. Add egg yolk and vanilla and process until evenly combined (mix will look like wet sand). Pat the crust into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan and about 1 inch up the sides.
2
For filling: Wipe out the food processor. Add egg, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla; process until smooth. Spread into the crust.
3
For topping: Toss apples, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl until combined. Spoon over the filling, pressing gently. Top with almonds.
4
Bake in a preheated 400º oven for 15 minutes.
5
Reduce oven temp to 350º. Continue baking until set around edges and just a bit jiggly in the center, 20 to 25 minutes more.
6
Cool on wire rack for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edges, remove the pan sides and let cool completely for about an hour. Refrigerate until cold, from 2 to 8 hours, before serving.
