Okay, so you have some leftover apples and you are craving a dessert… this is what you make! It is not vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free (so be warned). But it is so super delicious and so easy to make – because I don’t really make anything that isn’t super easy to make haha. I hope you love this tasty dessert as much as Chris and I, did!
Crust: ** you can use a pre-made pie crust if you want an even easier option.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup plain, greek, yogurt (or 8 ounces cream cheese)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup sugar
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Make the crust: Cream the butter and sugar. Stir in the vanilla. Finally, mix in the flour to make a smooth dough. Alternately, put the butter, sugar, vanilla, and flour in the food processor and pulse to crumbs. Pour them into your pan and press into place. Press into the bottom of an 8-inch spring-form pan, giving it about a 1-inch rim. Bake 15 minute, or until lightly golden. Remove the tart shell from the oven.
While the crust bakes, beat together the yogurt, sugar, egg and vanilla for the cream filling until smooth (I put all the ingredients in a stand mixer and let it mix until super smooth). Make the topping by tossing the apple slices with the cinnamon and sugar.
Remove the tart shell from the oven. Spread over the cream mixture. Arrange the apple slices on top – in a pretty pretty design! This was my favorite part. Bake until the apples are tender and golden, about 30-32 minutes.
