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.

Ingredients:

4 tbsp. melted butter

2 tbsp. brown sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

4 apples, tops sliced, insides scooped

2 blocks cream cheese, softened

1/2 c powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

2. Place apples in a baking dish and brush on apples. Bake 20 minutes.

3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Spoon mixture into stuffed apples and bake 10 minutes more.

4. Optional- garnish apples with graham crackers (I have Kinnikinnick Foods S'moreables Graham Crackers).

5. Let sit for 5 minutes as apples will be hot. Enjoy!
