Apple & Cranberry Baked Cheesecake Recipe
It has been long time I never bake cheesecake again. Last Saturday, I grab one Anchor cream cheese from bakery ingredient shop and start to bake this Apple & Cranberry Baked Cheesecake.
This is the first time I cook apple ingredient, as I do not really like apple. But after this, I will continue with apple stuff as it really taste delicious. The green apple is not sour at all after cook in sugar and lemon juice. I believe this is a good way to enjoy green apple if you do not like sour, as some people claimed that green apple helps in reducing colesterol. Well, no matter this is true or not, who cares? As I only care on the recipe, and you?
This recipe is suit for those who are not very fancy about cheese but still want to eat cheese as the cheese taste is not very strong.
