Bavarian Apple Torte

This is another winner that I got off of my friends blog www.nummiesforyou.blogspot.com. I have made this a couple of times for family dinners and everyone has loved it!

What you need:

1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour

1 egg
1/4 cup sour cream
8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

3 apples (peeled, cored, sliced thin) (either Gala or Granny Smith apples)
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of cloves
pinch of nutmeg
1/4 cup sliced almonds

Whip butter until creamy and then add sugar and beat until smooth. Add vanilla and flour until it forms a ball. Butter bottom and sides of a 9 inch spring form pan. Press crust mixture onto the bottom and up 1 inch on the sides.

Beat the cream cheese until light. Add sugar and beat until blended. Add the vanilla, egg, and sour cream. Beat until smooth. Pour into crust and spread evenly.

Mix apples, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg in a bowl until all the apples are covered. Lay apples flat on top of the filling in a fan shape or flower shape or any design you like. Sprinkle almonds in a ring around the outer edge of the apples. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes and then 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Serve warm or chilled with ice cream.
