‘Necessity is the mother of invention’ and I made this delicious dessert in that way. There was half a block of Cream Cheese in the fridge for a while. I had to use it up. Then I found some Apples in the fruit bowl were getting bad. I decided to make Apple Cheesecake sort of dessert. I wanted to add some Sultanas, but found I didn’t have enough Sultanas. So I added Dry Apricot instead. And now, I have another recipe!
22cm Pie Dish
3 to 4 Apples *enough to fill the pie dish
1/4 cup Dried Apricot *cut into small pieces
