French Apple Tart In Puff Pastry | You Can Make Tonight!

French Apple Tart In Puff Pastry | You Can Make Tonight!

This French Apple Tart Recipe is the just about perfect.  Anytime I use puff pastry in a recipe I’m delighted with the result and you will be too.  All you need to do is get the puff pastry out of the freezer and let it thaw (you can easily unthaw overnight in the fridge) and slice and core some apples.  That. Is. It.  Slice your apples very thinly so that they will soften while baking, and have fun creating this design, or make up one of your own!  You don’t even need to peel the apples!

White Chocolate Cheesecake with Cranberries (Instant Pot)

White Chocolate Cheesecake with Cranberries (Instant Pot)

A light and luscious white chocolate cheesecake  that is definitely a showstopper! It’s so easy for you to make in the Instant Pot.  No need to fuss with a Bain Marie (water bath) that regular oven recipes require.  I make all of my cheesecakes in the Instant Pot now.  In keeping with the lightness in flavour, the vanilla Oreo cookies make a perfect crust. This recipe makes a a lovely ‘tall’ cheesecake in the 7″ springform pan, and will serve about 8 people.  You can make the cheesecake a day or two before serving it as well.
