Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl, combine oats, whole wheat flour, and ground pecans; set aside. In a large bowl, combine half of the cream cheese and the butter; beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, orange peel, baking soda, and salt; beat until well mixed. Beat in as much of the oat mixture as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining oat mixture. If necessary, cover and chill for 30 to 60 minutes or until easy to handle.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Pat dough evenly on the bottom and up the sides of a lightly greased 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Line pastry with a double thickness of foil that has been coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 4 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 3 minutes more. Cool completely on a wire rack.

  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the remaining cream cheese, the sour cream, egg white, 2 tablespoons orange marmalade, and ground cardamom; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread into crust.

  • Arrange apple slices in two concentric rings atop the cream cheese mixture in tart pan, overlapping slices slightly. Cover top of tart with foil.

  • Bake for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10 to 15 minutes more or until crust is golden brown and apples are just tender.

  • Place 2 tablespoons orange marmalade in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cover; microwave on 50 percent power (medium) for 10 seconds. Stir; microwave about 10 seconds more or until melted. Brush over apples. Serve tart slightly warm or cool.


Tips: We do not recommend using brown sugar substitute for this recipe.

If you have a mandoline, use it to slice the apples about 1/8 inch thick.

To toast nuts, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 5 to 10 minu
