Quick Apple Cheesecake snackpots that’re no bake AND have caramelised apples and crunchy bits?. That sounds like it could be in my favourite dessert category.
And it is.
This Quick Apple Cheesecake makes for a great dessert or even a nice snack. I was making easy quick desserts with Apples last month for one of my favourite websites. This one slipped through the cracks but I love it. It’s just indulgent enough to be memorable but small enough for eating after dinner (or in my case breakfast)
I like it when it is just freshly whipped up, soft and creamy and light, but you can make it and store it for up to 24 hours in the fridge.
I made this for my sister who was kind of a captive and had to suffer through my cooking a couple of weeks ago when she had an unfortunate visit to the hospital. Her kids still had to eat and with her laid up they had to have their Aunty as guest cook. She got her computer out and ordered the fruit and vegetables from Aussie Farmers Direct.
Now that isn’t something I have ever done because I don’t want to order from Coles or Woolworths. I had no idea there was an alternative. They even have those dinner boxes that arrive with a recipe. Ahem… that’s not my sort of cooking though so we just got lots of meat, fruit and vegies including these organic Granny Smith Apples.
That is how this dessert was born. It’s been born a few times since then too because I love it. The base is a bit of a hack. It uses crumbled biscuits but on the plus side you can use gluten free ones or even homemade ones if you want. It’s best made with lovely Green tart Granny Smith Apples but you can make it with any very firm apples. Floury apples will break up before caramelising.
