Creamy Apple Ricotta Tart

An apple tart that is to die for.
This tastes as good as it looks,
a fantasic apple cheese tart that
goes together in just minutes time,
using a store bought pie crust.
I used small macintosh apples here and
they gave it a nice apple sauce taste.
The cheese makes this a five star recipe.

1 pie crust, room temp
7 macintosh apples
6 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
2 large eggs
15 ounces ricotta cheese
pinch of salt or to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Peel apples and cut into slices
around the core, disguard core.
Place apples in a large bowl with
the cinnamon, allspice, salt and sugar.
Stir to coat apples all over well.
In a mixing bowl combine ricotta and eggs.
Line a pastry or pie dish with the crust.
Arrange apples on bottom of crust.
Pour cheese mixture all over apples.
Push any excess crust toward center of tart.
Bake uncovered for about 1 hour then open oven
door and turn oven to broil a few minutes, to
get the cheese a little brown color.
Watch it closely you don't want it blackened.
Remove and let cool ten minutes before serving.
