I do like pumpkin during the Fall season, but sometimes you just have to let the apples step in. Have you gotten sick of all the pumpkin flavored food yet? I’m not yet, had some pumpkin cheese cake ice cream the other day ago at Coldstone and it was delicious. Now, I’m in the mood for apples. It is mandatory, during the Fall season that you must go apple picking at least once. Now that I’m single, I do not need to have a gazillion bags of picked apples from the orchard, so I just go to the grocery store and get one or 3 of them for myself.
If you’ve never stuffed your apples with anything before you must try these cheese cake stuffed apples. Next, I’m going to stuff some apples with apple crisp. These cheese cake stuffed apples have changed the way I think about what you can do to apples. No more boring apple pie or apple crisp anymore. Just stuff apples with that instead!
If you’re single like me, you can easily scale this recipe down for just one person.
