Shaker Gourmet: Bavarian Apple Torte

This recipe was posted on a board I frequent and it's oh-so-delish. This is also an easy-yet-impressive dish that would be fabulous to have for company--or Thanksgiving!
Bavarian Apple Torte

1/2 cup butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup all purpose flour

--Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Blend in flour. Spread dough on bottom and sides of a 9" springform pan.

1 - 8oz package cream cheese
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

--Combine softened cheese and sugar - mix well. Add egg and vanilla, mix well. Pour into pan on top of crust.

1/3 cup sugar
2 - 3 cups sliced peeled apples
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup sliced almonds

--Combine sugar, cinnamon and apples, and spoon evenly over cheese layer. Sprinkle with almonds.

Bake at 450F for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 400F for 25 minutes.
What I did differently was to add cinnamon to the crust, omit the almonds (as I don't care for them), and greatly increased the cinnamon w/the apples.
