Apple-Cheese Tart


I enjoy finding other uses for ingredients in my kitchen. Needing a fresh dessert for my family one night, I came up with this gem. Feel free to add to or take away as you and your family need. This tart is good warm, and scrum-diddily-umptious cold! Enjoy.

12 3-inch squares



  • 1 prepared pie pastry (such as Pillsbury® Pie Crust)

  • 1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling

  • 7 ½ ounces part-skim ricotta cheese

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 ½ ounces shredded Cheddar cheese

Crumb Topping:

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Roll out pie crust lengthwise to fit into the bottom a 13x9-inch baking dish with a good 1/2-inch of the crust up all sides.

  3. Mix apple pie filling, ricotta cheese, egg, and shredded Cheddar cheese together in a bowl; pour over the pastry and flatten into a smooth layer.

  4. Mix flour, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon together in a separate bowl. Mash butter into the flour mixture with a fork or pastry cutter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over the apple pie mixture in the pan.

  5. Bake in preheated oven until crust is a good caramel-brown color, 15 to 20 minutes.
