Apple Almond Cheesecake Bars

If you like cheesecake and apple pie but can’t choose between the two, here’s a good compromise. It’s a cheesecake bar with almonds, lemon and apple – a little of everything. I found this recipe in one of Fine Cooking’s special publications “Sweet Cakes”. Their photo made it look more like an apple bar, but mine seemed more like a cheesecake bar that just happened to have some apple in it. The apples didn’t add as much flavor as I thought but the bars were still very good.  They tasted even better on day 2 and the lemon  flavor seemed more pronounced.

    This is an interesting departure and looks very good. I wonder if blueberries could be substituted? That would probably change the texture quite a bit, with the added juiciness from the berries. I do love the combo of lemon, blueberry and cream cheese.Still, I think I would enjoy these “as is.”

    This is something that could totally be served on Thanksgiving day – so people can nibble during the afternoon. I am still sticking to tarte Bourdaloue, though 🙂

    Gosh! I think yours look a lot like Fine Cooking’s do, but whether they’re apple cheesecake, or cheesecake apple, they look very good.
    I’m in the midst of Thanksgiving Day preparations and have already made a major baking error. I made cornbread for cornbread stuffing and forgot to add the melted butter. I was upset but when it came out of the oven it seemed fine. Then I read the recipe and when the stuffing is mixed it calls for another 8 oz. of butter. I decided we wouldn’t miss the butter in the cornbread after all.
    Back to baking.

    I just took another one of your Browned Butter Pecan Pies out of the oven. It looks and smells fabulous! It is less jiggly than the last one I made last week-my oven isn’t the greatest so I needed to keep it in longer…BTW, these bars look delicious too! Have a happy TG everyone!

    I baked this as an extra Thanksgiving treat. I didn’t have any lemon juice so I used orange extract. It is delicious. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving.
