Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cup full fat cottage cheese strained overnight*
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal/flour finely ground almonds
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla bean seeds scraped or 2 vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups whipped cream for serving

Caramel Apples

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 3 quart baking dish.
  • In the bowl of a food processor or high powdered blender, add the cottage cheese, sugar, flour, almond meal, heavy cream, vanilla and eggs. Purée until smooth, about 2-3 minutes. Pour into prepared baking dish. Bake until browned and slightly puffed, 45 minutes to an hour. Let cool just slightly before serving.
  • Meanwhile, make the caramel + apples. Add the apple cider to a medium sauce pot and bring to a boil, boil for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the cider has reduced to about 1/3 cup and is thick and syrupy. Reduce the heat and add the brown sugar, 4 tablespoons butter and the cream. Bring back to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes or until the the caramel is thickened and dark in color. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Heat a medium size skillet over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons butter. Add the apples, cinnamon and salt, cook, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. During the last minute add 1 teaspoon vanilla and cook another minute. Remove from heat.
  • To serve, add a dollop of whipped cream to each piece of cheesecake. Top with apples and then drizzle with caramel. ENJOY!

Notes

*To strain the cottage cheese, just place a thin kitchen towel inside a strainer set over a large bowl. Place in the fridge and let sit overnight. **To make mini cheesecakes, divide the batter among 18 greased cupcake tins and bake for 10-15 minutes or until puffed and lightly golden. Serve as directed above. ***Inspired by [this recipe | http://shesimmers.com/2010/03/ostkaka-swedish-cheesecake-recipe-from-mikael.html].
