Happy Birthday to my Hubby!!

Today, is my husband's 69th birthday.  All he wanted was for me to make this dessert that I had made back in January.  Of course, he won't just get this dessert but of course I WILL make it for him.

I'd say it's a cheesecake type dessert with apples/cranberries and an almond flour topping.

Here's the recipe should you decide you would like to try it.  It's really yummy!!


Crust and Crumble topping:

3 C. almond Meal
1 stick butter, softened
1 C. Xylitol (or other sweetener equivalent to 1 cup of sugar)
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon molasses 
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


16 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 large eggs
1/2 cup Xylitol (or other sweetener equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar)
1 Granny Smith apple (or other variety)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup fresh cranberries

Preheat oven to 350º F.  In a large bowl, combine almond meal, butter, sweetener, cinnamon, molasses, vanilla and salt and mix.
Grease a 9 1/2" tart or pie pan.  Using approximately 1 cup of the almond meal mixture, form a thin bottom crust with your hands or a spoon.  In another bowl, combine cream cheese, eggs and sweetener and mix with spoon or mixer at low speed.  Pour into tart or pie pan.  Core apple and slice into very thin sections.  Arrange in circles around the edge of the cream cheese mixture, working inwards.  Distribute cranberries over top, then sprinkle cinnamon over entire mixture.  Gently layer remaining almond meal crumble evenly over top.  Bake for 30 minutes or until topping is lightly browned.

Hope you like it as much as he does.

Have a Great day!!!
