Gluten Free Cheesecake Stuffed Apples

This week was Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. During the New Year, we celebrate with apples dipped in honey to celebrate a "sweet new year'. I had a plethora of extra apples at home (thank you to the Fun to Eat Fruit Company for the inscribed apples) so my fiance and I decided to make these delicious cheesecake stuffed apples.
