When I say easy apple cheesecake or apple pie, I mean every word of it.
The easy apple cheesecake doesn’t ask for much- just 6 ingredients, all of which I guarantee you’ll find at home. It uses paneer (smirk if you like) and none of the fancy schmancy cheeses that are forever out of stock in the supermarkets!
This is one ‘cheesecake’ you must try when apples are in season. It is minimalistic and very simply highlights the apple flavour without much ado. You can put this together if you have 15 minutes, 3 apples and a litre of milk on hand. I’m not kidding you. I find this taste far far superlative to the regular apple pie which is not only more labour intensive but also flour calorie intensive.
Apples in bakes come a close second for me after bananas. I have some three regular apple cake recipes that I like to use when I find some apples languishing in the refrigerator and I’m in a good mood to rescue them from dying a slow death. However let me not talk of morose things like death, when there’s such an interesting recipe to share.
One of my best friends is a Marwari and once again I must say the Marwari ladies are a very creative lot – often indulging in very innovative pursuits, not excluding cooking. This recipe was passed on to my friend by her relative – an Indian version of an apple cheesecake or you can call it an apple pie. If you serve this up at your next party, I can guarantee that your guests may forget you but will never forget the taste of this absolutely yummy piece of cheesecake. I’ve made this just once which was quite a few months ago – but I can’t wait to make it again.
