This apple almond torte is like your favorite apple pie, but with a beautiful almond flavor and no top crust. The crushed almonds in the crust give it just the right amount of nuttiness and the sliced almonds on top give it a pretty finish, which also means you don't have to worry too much about what the apples look like underneath.

Apple Filling:
  • 4 gala apples peeled and sliced into ¼-inch slices
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup finely crushed almonds
Cheese Layer:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Place the sliced apples in a large bowl. Combine the white sugar, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon in a small bowl and then sprinkle the mixture over the apples. Toss everything together to coat really well and set the apples aside.

  3. Use a food processor or electric mixer to cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the flour and crushed almonds and process or blend until a soft dough comes together. Press the dough into the bottom and 2-inches up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Chill the crust in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes.

  4. Using a food processor or electric mixer, blend the cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour the cream cheese mixture into the pan, spreading it out evenly over the crust.
  5. Toss the apples one last time and layer them evenly over the cream cheese in the pan. Pour any juice from the bowl of apples over the top and scatter the sliced almonds on top. Loosely cover the top and sides of the pan with aluminum foil and transfer the pan to the oven.
  6. Bake at 375°F for 50 minutes. Then uncover and bake for another 30 to 40 minutes, until the apples are tender to a knifepoint. Remove the pan from the oven and transfer the torte to a cooling rack to allow it to cool completely in the pan. Then chill for at least 4 hours before slicing and serving.
