Apple cinnamon mascarpone Tart

Hi , I missed you my beloved readers.. :) actually during the last couple of days , was just cooking,baking and photographing..no blogging :(
so ,be ready guys to be flooded with my upcoming posts. am being modest ,right!!?
And Finally, here it comes out of the oven.....shiny,golden and smells heavenly good..
MY VERY FIRST TART......HORRRRRRAAAAAY.
As I was searching and searching for an easy and quick recipe for tarts...I bumped into a great baking website..(joyofbaking) really nice..and my recipe is Partially inspired from it.
so, if you are looking to a super duper quick, tasty...and 0% failure tart recipe..so here you go..:))

What you will need:
For the dough:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter {cold and cut into small pieces}

For the Filling:
100 gm cream cheese..I used philadephia.
100 gm mascarpone.
30 gm riccotta cheese
1/4 cup of granulated sugar.
1 large egg.
1/4 tsp vanilla extract.

For the topping:
3 large tart apples .peeled and sliced.
1/4 cup granulated sugar.
1 tsp ground cinnamon.

What to do:
The Dough::In your food processor..put the flour +sugar and pulse 2 or three times.
add the butter and pulse 6-8 times till you get the coarse cornmeal texture.Pat the dough onto the bottom of a springform pan  one inch (2.5 cm) up the sides of the pan. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge .

The filling:
Again in the food processor , put the 3 types of cheese (room temprature)
and the sugar ...pulse to blend.
add the egg and vanilla and blend again until smooth.
take the dough out of the fridge..pour into your filling and put it back to prepare the topping.

The topping:
Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl

toss the sliced apples and mix well.

Finalization---->> preheat your oven 350 f.
spoon the apples evenly on your filling mixture..and arrange it nicely.
bake for 40 minutes or until the apple is soft and the filling is set..or when you smell the lovely cinnamon-vanilla odour.

Optional----> sprinkle with conf. sugar and almonds.
serve hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream...or even serve cold..
Enjoy!!
