Apple Cheesecake

I am posting a recipe but I am cheating and using one I already had typed up.  Everyone that likes apple pie loves this.  I served it last Thursday night when we had friends visiting from New York.  Their sons loved it as do mine.  I failed to take a picture before it disappeared but it is worth the work.

    Ps the way the rabies vaccine works in my city is you have the option of having it done once a year or (what we choose) have a rabies vaccine done that s good for 3 years. And by law you have to have your three year rabies done once every three years on the dot.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love hearing from people. I have turned word verification back off. We will see how that works.
