Bavarian Apple Torte
This is a recipe I made when I first got married.
I will call it a vintage recipe and it never is out of style.
Every time I bake this it disappears.
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 8 ounces packages softened cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
5 cups thin sliced, peeled granny smith apples
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Mix all the crust ingredients together.
Press into the bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan
Beat the cream cheese and sugar
Add the vanilla and eggs
Beat till fluffy
Pour on to the crust
Mix the apples with the sugar and cinnamon
Layer the apples on top of the cream cheese mixture
Make a design because it will look pretty
Bake for 60 to 65 minutes at 350 degrees
Glaze with apricot preserves when it comes out of the oven
Cool and take out of the pan
