Butterscotch Apple Cream Cheese Tart

Assalamu’alaikum 🙂 

We had some not so tasty bitter apples, and of course we had to think of something to make them edible.

With limited ingredients, we put together this tart Alhamdulillah.

I have come to love butterscoth sauce. It’s much easier to make than caramel sauce.

Sorry, super unglam picture. But it tastes amazing. T was like it’s the best thing we’ve ever made.

Here’s how to make it…


  • 6 tbsp butter, softened
  • 3 tsp (or more if u like) brown sugar
  • 12 tbsp all purpose flour

Cheese filling:

  • 250g cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp cinammon


  • 4 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • orange juice/lemon juice to coat apple slices
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinammon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Butterscotch sauce:

  • 60g unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. For the crust, cream butter and sugar, then mix in flour. Press onto base and up the sides by an inch of a 9inch springform pan.
  2. For the cheese filling, beat cream cheese till fluffy, then beat everything else in till smooth. Pour onto crust.
  3. Toss sliced apples in the rest of the appl ingredients, then arrange on top of cheese filling.
  4. Bake at 175 degrees C for 30min, till apples are tender.
  5. While tart is baking, make the butterscotch sauce…
  6. Over medium heat, melt butter in a heavybottom saucepan. 
  7. When almost melted, add in the sugar and mix till it becomes smooth. This should take about 5min to become almost like ganache consistency.
  8. Add in cream, whisk till smooth, turn down the heat slightly. Let it boil and cook, while stirring every now and then, for 10min.
  9. Cool to room temperature, then add in salt. You can add in vanilla here too, but I didnt have any at the time, and it tasted great.
  10. Drizze sauce over tart and serve. I like it warm.
