Serves: 4
Ingredients
You will need 4 small (tea cup sized) ramekins
  • 3 apples , peeled cored and diced into small even pieces
  • 2 T honey or white sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons icing sugar
  • 250 gm cream cheese (left at room temperate to soften)
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup plain unsweetened yoghurt
  • 150 gm Biscuits ( butternuts, or very crunchy biscuits not shortbread they'll will get soggy)
  • 30 gm Tablespoons toasted raw Almonds
  • 1 Tablespoon nuts or seeds to finish
To make gluten free biscuit crumb
  • 200 gm softened butter
  • 100 gm brown sugar
  • 100 gm caster sugar
  • 200 gm almond meal
  • 100 gm gluten free flour
Instructions
  1. Peel and core the apples and cut into ¼'s then dice into equal sized squares. Put them in a small pot with the honey and ¼ cup of water. Simmer on low stirring every so often. The water will eventually evaporate and the apples will look opaque. You will need to stir them a little more regularly now as they start to colour and caramelise. Once they start to turn golden stir frequently so they don't catch. Pour them into a bowl or plate and set aside.
  2. Put the Almonds into the bowl of the food processor and break up a little before adding the biscuits and pulsing till roughly sized big and small bits. Pour these into the base of the 4 dishes and set aside.
  3. Next put the cream cheese, yoghurt, lemon juice and sugar into a food processor and whizz till smooth scraping down the sides. Spoon the mixture evenly amongst the dishes.
  4. Spoon the apples onto the top of each mini cheesecake and garnish with roasted nuts or seeds and some crumbs if there are any left
Gluten Free biscuit
  1. Mix all the ingredients together and spread onto a baking tray.
  2. Bake at 170 C for 15 minutes until starting to colour. Remove from the oven and stir together. return to the oven at 5 minute intervals until very crispy and browned. Cool
Notes
