The days are a little shorter, the nights are a little colder, and all we want is to be all warm and cozy. One bite of these ooey gooey cheesecake baked apples will take you there.
Here’s what you need:
1 oz Ginger SweetShine
4 Tbsp. melted butter
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 blocks cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Gala apples have a mildly sweet flavor that makes them perfect for baking, but use whichever variety you prefer.
Cut off the tops.
And scoop out the insides.
In a mixing bowl combine butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
Stir to dissolve sugar.
Add Ginger SweetShine and stir again.
Place apples in a baking dish and cover with sugar mixture. Bake 20 minutes.
While you wait, combine cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth.
Remove apples from the oven and fill with cream cheese mixture.
Top with pecans.
Bake another 10 minutes.
