Reviews for Apple Danish Cheesecake

This was delicious! It reminded me of a mix between apple pie and cheesecake. I enjoyed this recipe because it was not as rich as a regular cheesecake. I used frozen apple slices and baked it for 5-10 minutes longer. It turned out great!
This cake was a huge hit. The crust is absolutely delicious and I will use it in other recipes in the future. The only change I would make is to double the amounts for the cheese layer.
I have made this recipe several times and it is always a big hit.
Delicious. Made it for Easter Sunday lunch and it was a hit. Very easy to make - don't expect the pastry to be like a usual one, as it's very crumbly but works perfectly. Yummmmmm.
I actually had made this recipe before & had given the cheesecake to a friend. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I adjusted the recipe by omitting the ground almonds and adding 2 Tbsp. milk to the crust. I didn't roll out the crust dough, I just pressed it into a greased and floured 9" springform pan. I used 1 tsp. vanilla extract in the filling. I omitted the slivered almonds in the topping. I'd even made mini cheesecakes and cut the butter down to 1/4 cup and melted the 1/4 cup butter for the mini cheesecake crust which I'd placed in fluted paper liners in muffin pans. For the 9" cheesecake and the mini cheesecakes, I used the 4 cups of apple topping. I'd recommend slicing the apples in half for the mini cheesecakes, but keep the apples slices as is for the 9" cheesecake. I baked the 9" cheesecake 45 minutes and the mini
cheesecakes 25 to 30 minutes! As for refrigerating, I chilled the cheesecake in the springform pan overnight before removing the cheesecake. It WAS NOT easy to get the cheesecake out of the bottom of the springform pan-I did have to use several utensils to get it off the bottom!
I did manage to get the cheesecake off the bottom of the pan. The mini cheesecakes I'd just chilled in my refrigerator! I would say that this recipe rated a 5* recipe! delowenstein
