An apple is filled with a cinnamon cheesecake center. I used a Braeburn apple but any variety will work. Great for a cold night! Serve with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 apple
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried cranberries

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. 2 Cut the stem out of the apple and hollow out the center until it is about 1 1/2 inches wide without going through the bottom. In a small cup, stir together the cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Set aside half of this mixture, and mix the rest with the cream cheese and dried cranberries.
  3. 3 Sprinkle some of the reserved cinnamon sugar into the apple's cavity. Fill with the cream cheese mixture, and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar on the top. Place the apple in a small baking dish.
  4. 4 Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until the apple is tender enough to easily pierce with a fork.

  1. I made four of these little gems last night. I did not add the additional sugar to any of the four apples and I used dried blueberries only because I didn't have any dried cranberries. I used Pinata apples which are very sweet on their own baking them only made them sweeter which made me - Read more ...
  2. I love baked apples and this looked pretty simple so I had to give this a try and I'm glad I did. I cut back on the sugar a bit and used brown instead of white. You could easily sub raisins for the cranberries or add some nuts if you like. These smelled very good - Read more ...

  4. Well I was in the mood for a fall desert and needed something to keep the kids busy tonight while dinner was cooking. I am not a big fan of baked apples unless they are very sweet so I came across this recipe and liked the combination of Cranberries and apples. I made a couple - Read more ...
  5. I used Splenda and Raisins and I added a tiny bit of flax. Delicious!
  6. Just made this. It was delicious! This is a real keeper!! I used Splenda brown sugar and fat free cream cheese to lighten it up. Since I don't like the texture of cream cheese I threw in about 2 T of oatmeal. It was perfect. My husband gave it a "10".
  7. I loved this recipe and will definitely be using it again. I used Honeycrisp apples which are large and very light of texture and they bake beautifully. A couple of other reviewers mentioned texture problems with the filling; I did not have that problem. The filling was creamy rich and oozed deliciously over the tender - Read more ...
  8. This is not the prettiest dessert but it tastes very good! I followed the directions exactly. The only difference was that after adding half of the sugar mixture to the cream cheese there was really more left than I needed. Even after sprinkling some in the cavity and some on top I still had some - Read more ...
  9. I love baked apples I love cheesecake so I thought I would love this hybrid. They smelled great baking. I was disappointed to find that my fillin had taken on a rubber-like consistency in the oven. Not very appetizing....
