Apple pie is an ol’ favourite and mixed with a cheesecake base is even more memorable. Top with apple for added crunch.

Biscuits, jam tartlet

12 individual

Green apple, unpeeled

2 large, thinly sliced, plus 1/2 unpeeled, in matchsticks

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C or 140°C fan-forced. Line a 12-hole, ⅓-cup (80ml) capacity muffin tin with foil cases. Place biscuits, jam-side up, in base of cases.
