Bavarian Apple Tart

Ingredients (6-8 servings)
    Layer One
    1/2 cup butter
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    Layer Two...

    8 oz cream cheese, softened
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    Layer Three
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    4 cups peeled, sliced apples (I used three Spartan apples and had just the right amount to fit on the pan - I didn't measure them)
    1/4 cup sliced almonds (optional)

    Instructions
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Blend in flour to make a soft dough. Spread or press on bottom of 9 inch springform pan.

    Cream together the cream cheese and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Pour onto pastry in pan.

    Combine the sugar and cinnamon, add the apples and toss together. Arrange on cream cheese layer and sprinkle almonds on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, then increase baking temperature to 400 degrees and bake until the apples are tender, about 25 minutes more. If the almonds begin to brown too quickly, cover loosely with aluminum foil. Cool slightly. Remove from pan, loosening edges with a knife first. Cut into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.
